“Sticking to one’s beliefs is paramount to one’s success. Rather than copying others, saving one’s own uniqueness is the secret to making art for a long time.”
He is a veteran artist with more than 20 years of experience. He loves art more than anything. His art pieces reflect the Ethiopian tradition in a unique and beautiful way. He started art because of his love for nature, and because of his belief that there is no other way to express the beauty of nature and one’s feelings. He says art has a special part in his heart and still remembers the first artwork he saw. He wants to leave a print on his audiences with art pieces with beautiful patterns and symbols.
He believes that traditions contain a wealth of cultural values. So the main theme of his work is the connotation of tradition. The countryside of Ethiopia retains its traditions and landscape. He gets inspiration from the people who live in it. He wants to emphasize the beauty and importance of traditional women by mainly portraying women in the countryside. Blue and purple, combined with the traditional scenery of his work, add a mysterious atmosphere. Blue represents the openness of rural people, and purple represents their strength and wisdom.
