    Born in 1977 in Assela, Ethiopia, Yosef Lule typically

    draws inspiration for his paintings from daily life, as

    well as from his own travels around the world. He once

    moved to the South of France to paint for an entire

    year. It is his personal conviction that an artist’s work

    should bring about happiness rather than sadness.

    He also believes in nurturing an original style, saying,

    “It is important for an artist to maintain his own

    individual style and develop it further.”

    He graduated from the Addis Ababa University School

    of Fine Arts and Design in 2001. Since then, he has

    worked on several projects for UNICEF and UNFPA,

    and has been a part of several multicultural

    counterpart of his poems, he features female figures in

    his paintings, as a sign of beauty and romance.

    Yonas’ works mainly focusses on Ethiopian calligraphy,

    icon, tradition and colors. He has participated in

    different group exhibitions and fairs apart from

    competing in various art competitions.

    Zerihun Yetmgeta has established a trademark with his

    magic scroll paintings based on weaver’s tools and strips of

    parchment framed on pieces of wood. His unique art form

    “transforms traditional motifs into a modern idiom”, in the

    words of art critic Elizabeth Biasio.

    He hails from what was known as the Renaissance Period of

    Ethiopian Art. After receiving his Art Diploma from Emperor

    Haile Selassie I in 1967, he opened his first one-man show

    to the public. It consisted of a mixture of canvas, skin and

    wood, and was such a success that half his artworks were

    sold at the exhibition itself.

    Owing to his extraordinary choice of medium, numerous

    art books and other publications have featured his work.

    His art boldly tackles major Ethiopian issues, and has been

    displayed at many museums around the world.

    He has been recognised not just as an Ethiopian artist,

    but as a renowned African artist. He won first place at

    the prestigious Second Dakar Biennale of Contemporary

    African Art in 1992, and secured second place at the

    Kenyan Panorama Awards in 1994. He is currently a

    member of the Fine Arts Faculty at Addis Ababa University,

    where he works as an Instructor of Graphic Art.

    Despite his international background, Worku

    Goshu remains a genuine Ethiopian artist. He

    began his Art education at the Addis Ababa

    University School of Fine Arts and Design before

    earning a scholarship to the Academy of Fine

    Arts in Krakow, Poland. He graduated from there

    with a Master’s degree in Pure and Applied

    Graphic Art.

    Soon after his marriage, he returned to Ethiopia,

    and taught at the Addis Ababa University School

    of Fine Arts and Design for 27 years. Although his

    exhibitions are rare, he has been part of the

    Art of Ethiopia show since its 2nd year. The

    privileged few who have seen his art would agree

    that it is an experience in itself that serves to

    open your imagination. His paintings reflect his

    sources of inspiration - they serve as a constant

    interpretation of Ethiopia’s artistic traditions,

    yet are still tinged with a modern appeal.

    At present, Worku resides in Addis Ababa, where

    he owns the Goshu Art Gallery along with his

    wife Barbara.
