Efie Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in Dubai specialised in the promotion of artists from Africa, both within the continent and the diaspora, with a particular focus on artists ranging from West Africa. The gallery represents both mid-career and established artists and supports the sharing of their works in the Middle East, creating a unique platform for collaboration and exchange between the two regions. This platform for collaboration goes beyond the mere exhibition of artists from Africa, rather an artist studio for residency programmes caters for both the gallery’s artists and local artists, presenting itself as the active site for said collaboration.


Efie Gallery was founded by Valentina Mintah, Kobi Mintah and Kwame Mintah.
