Elias Areda    Works    Biography

The work of Elias Areda focusses on the motif of the Ethiopian Woman. Through his bold use of vivid colour and form within his depictions, Elias creates an expressive representation of the strong women seen central within Ethiopian culture and Art.

With a solid emphasis on community within his work – central to contemporary Ethiopian life – his narratives focus on women and their roles within Ethiopian society. Elias is able to celebrate and showcase his cultural heritage through a combination of expressive composition, surface pattern and heavy brushwork, whilst also creating artwork that is both visually striking but powerfully emotive.
