There are two composite focuses within the work of Abraham Abebe; that of a modern representation of Ethiopian life and that which nods to traditional iconography. Within a large portion of his work he adopts a bold use of pure colour and geometric form to create flat and abstract depictions of everyday life in modern Ethiopia. Elsewhere in his work he explores the symbol of the yellow Meskel flower; a traditional religious icon.

This stylistic focus on abstraction and flatness throughout his range of subject matter eludes to the Cubist and Futurist modern art movements. Through this point of reference Abraham is able to showcase modern Ethiopian art as having the ability to equal Western art.
