Many of Abraham’s themes originate from his childhood experiences and his upbringing in Autobusterra – a small village in Addis. Growing up he was witness to many instances of hardships; in particular poverty, addiction, conflict and immorality.

Over the years Abraham observed many people, teenagers, or children, stray onto numerous dangerous paths, unware of the consequences of their actions until the very end. He would see the whole process unfold and came to appreciate that every path has a truth and a consequence. This has subsequently become the conceptual foundation for many of his works. He captures consequences of actions through the emotive expressions he displays in his subjects. Deep colours reflect the subject’s state of mind which can be subtly interpreted in a number of his portraits.
