Influences of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, can be seen in Ashebir’s paintings as well as complex themes such as: action & reaction; fall & rise; time & space; evolution & revolution love & hate. Through the wonderment of a child’s perspective these themes create a juxtaposition and an enchanting world to inhabit, and Ashebir’s work is created from this lens.
Ashebir was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Following his graduation from high school he pursued Art Studies at the Abyssinia Fine Arts & Vocational Training Center and progressed to Teferi Mekonnen (Entoto) Technical and Vocational Education and Training(TVET) College.
Ashebir’s artistic expression is applied not only with painting but also thru sculpture, illustration, mosaic art and video art. St. George Gallery has exhibited Ashebir’s work since 2016.
