Addis Fine Art presented a selection of works by Ermias Kifleyesus at 1-54 London. To mark the occassion, Ermias Kifleyesus invited 1-54 to his studio in Belgium to discuss his practise and inspirations.
Ermias Kifleyesus attended the Addis Ababa University, Alle School of Fine Arts and Design where he was taught by the influential painter Tadesse Mesfin. As a multidisciplinary artist, Kifleyesus uses a plethora of artistic techniques and media, ranging from large-scale paper collages, mixed-media canvas pieces, and fresco-style murals, to video installations and intricate metal sculptures. By creating and deconstructing images, he allows us to investigate important questions about the human condition and the larger complexities of the world that occupy him.
