Abera Abrha’s intense painting style combines traditional Ethiopian and African themes with modern interpretive flair. Bright colors and unique subject matter lend a high emotional intensity to Abrha’s work, but it is his unique process of adding exquisite detail in his trademark style of deeply rich and intricate texture that define his body of work.
Abrha studied art and design at the Alle School of Fine Arts and Design of Addis Ababa University, and where he now works as an art professor.
Abraha’s work has been exhibited across Addis Ababa and featured as an installment at Hilton, Addis Ababa, where his painting was given first place at the art show. St. George Gallery has exhibited Abera Abrha’s work since 2015.
