Biography


Gabi Almeida, The Artist

Gabi Almeida, (AKA Mini Gabi) is a London based artist, creator of Mini Gabi, designer and animator.
Growing up in São Paulo, a concrete jungle and one of the biggest Japanese colonies in the world; the diversity of the city was a huge inspiration to the artist, and at an early age she became involved with the urban art and music scene there.
Her artworks are influenced by graffiti, street art, anime and comics, mixing circus and burlesque elements with cartoons, paintings and murals.
After having a head injury, she created the cartoon character Mini Gabi to front her band and go on tour on her behalf. But the character had ideas of her own, took over, and started having adventures, whilst Gabi Almeida was at home recovering. Soon, Mini Gabi became the main focus of her work, appearing on paintings, street art, cartoons, murals and  animations.
Gabi Almeida creates a world of fun, style and inspiration around a character with an authentic personality; a cheeky girl who appears in different colours and mediums, and likes to go around spreading messages of inspiration, empowerment, and fun.
Gabi Almeida works have been shown in London, Cornwall, Berlin, Brazil and Stockholm, in various art galleries and music venues, as well as on public walls.
She has collaborated with TEDX Covent Garden and The Eric Festival London, and  has worked and licensed images to brands such as IAMOK Berlin.
