The Ethiopian Israeli Artist Whose 'Black Art' Gives Power to the People

Versed Lee, Haaretz, May 10, 2019

Takele, 33, is one of the biggest successes in the younger generation of Israeli artists with Ethiopian roots. Her first solo exhibition was held in London, and in November 2020 she’ll have another solo exhibition in that city's Addis Fine Art gallery. Her works have been bought by the Israel Museum and prominent collectors.

 

“I feel that everything is happening in a short time – it’s three years since I completed my studies – but that it’s a success with roots that’s moving at the right pace,” she says.
