Artist's Website Website dedicated to Adelaide Damoah. A provocative, inspiring, thought provoking artist whose artistic works have already courted controversy.
Adelaide is best known for her 2006 exhibition "Black Brits" whereby she attempted to evoke a racial debate with striking pieces of British Icons, leading to appearances on BBC London News and Channel 5 News.

Adelaide had three solo shows in 2008, all to great acclaim, and three group shows in 2009 so far. Adelaide was specially commissioned by the NCDV- a domestic violence charity, to produce a series of paintings which went into a solo exhibition on 1 October in SOHO, London, United Kingdom. So far, she has two solo exhibitions booked for 2010 in Denmark and Spain, and a solo show in 2011 in Rome.
