Mina Hamada was born in Louisiana, USA and grew up in Japan. She studied design and illustration at the Sokei Academy of Fine Art & Design in Tokyo. Her first exhibitions included drawings, paintings and poetry. In 2009, she moved to Barcelona, where she studied typography and Hispanic studies. She still lives there to this day. Mina Hamada falls in love with Barcelona's contemporary urban art scene, mural art. There she experimented with her own style and created large-scale murals. At the end of 2011, she meets Zosen. The duo of artists starts collaborating on murals, installations, silkscreen printing and participate together in many festivals and mural exhibitions. Mina's work is exhibited in galleries and institutions throughout Europe, the United States, Latin America and Asia. The Speerstra gallery invites her in 2019 to participate in the Upaw project that it organizes every year in Monaco. The success of this first collaboration naturally led the Speerstra gallery to open the doors of its Parisian gallery to her.
