“Journey,” the newly installed art exhibition by Ethiopian-born artist Debebe Tesfaye, inspired by the colorful cityscapes of Ethiopia and its people, remind one of jazz. People with their varied and colorful dresses ride Tesfaye’s canvases and look out at the old houses and their doors and windows. The roofs, walls, and telephone poles tell a story. Happy or sad, young or old, his people share the same journey and meet on his canvases. Tesfaye improvises with different mediums and uses some alphabets, creating collages that have a visual harmony. His focus is more on the composition and the overall form than the details.

Tesfaye graduated from the Addis Ababa University Ale School of Fine Arts and Design in 1999.
