Mehari Teshome – Ethiopia

hhhInspired by nature and life around him, Ethiopian artist, Mehari Teshome creates pieces that reflect his interpretation of his own personality. Through fluid lines and colour he strives to reflect the tension and struggle of those around him, as well as his own.

Born in Addis Ababa in 1983, Mehari has devoted himself to expression through his art. He sees his artworks as a means in which he can express his fascination with the changing forms of nature, as well as the constantly changing culture around him.

He is also affected by the plight of many women in the society in which he lives, and strives to interpret their struggles, using wire and other objects to create grotesque shapes that reflect their ‘stagnant lives’.

His interpretation of life, nature and the human mind is created through line, abstract shape and colour.
In many works, he interprets the differences of colour within his own family, as well as the society around him, by reflecting light in his paintings.

Mehari has exhibited his works throughout Ethiopia since 2007 and has taken part in the 2014 3rd Adwa Festival / Zekre Adwa. Also in 2014, he participated in a live painting performance in Addis Ababa.
