“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
In your light I learn how to love. / In your beauty, how to make poems. / You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, / But sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
Everything we paint is a statement about ourselves.
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
Artist/ Animator/ Designer
I was born and brought up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and later spent a majority of my childhood between Rajkot and Bombay, India. Growing up between two distinct cultures has definitely shaped who I am; I've learned to portray the backgrounds, experiences, and cultures I've lived. through my art.
I studied graphic design and illustration at Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai and later studied classical animation at Sheridan College. I worked as a computer animator and artist designing TV commercials at United Arts.
Painting is truly what I love doing. Ever since I was little, the idea of working towards exploring and expressing a feeling, idea or a belief via colors has always intrigued me. Painting is truly a conceptual and symbolic journey.
My goal is to make a difference and convey meaningful messages with my art. Sharing the joy of doing art in a big group or small is fun for me.
