Mireia Serra was born in Barcelona in 1973 with an innate passion for sculpture. However, due to her parent's influence, she pursued a degree in fashion design, graduating in 1995. Serra began her professional career as a lingerie designer and worked in the industry for three years. Then her desire to expand her creative talent and find fulfillment in the fine arts led her to leave her job in 1998. Serra graduated in 2002 from the Llotja School of Arts in Barcelona (the same school that took under its wing Antoni Gaudí, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miró), specializing in iron and bronze. Later she took an advanced sculpture portrait course taught by sculptor Jorge Egea at Museo European d'Art Modern in order to master her technique.
Serra has been working as a full-time sculptor since 2003. In some of her recent sculptures, the presence of elements from the fashion world such as cameras, texture, detailed finishing of the clothes, and shoes make an appearance. She started to exhibit with galleries throughout Spain and landed her first solo shows and her first international art fair in Madrid in 2013.
Since 2016, Mireia Serra has been exhibited in galleries and art fairs in Germany, Austria, France, Luxembourg, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, the United States, and Hong Kong. Notable collectors include Kelly Clarkson.
