Yonas Degefa    Works    Biography

Yonas Degefa’s vast and varied catalogue of work demonstrates a continued exploration of three main themes: the unconscious, romanticism and the figure of the woman.

Another notable influence evident throughout Yonas’ body of work is traditional Ethiopian iconography and stylistic qualities found throughout the art history of Ethiopia. This faithful use of these external influences, teamed with his own personal motifs, enables Yonas to create a range of work which explores his rich and complex heritage, but which also reflects his individual responses to the contemporary cultural climate of Ethiopia.
