Yonatan Wondwosen    Works    Biography

Yonatan Wondwosen grew up in an artistic family and was acquainted with art from a very young age. He comes from a sculpturing background and uses meticulous collage and paint techniques on paper or canvas to create his precise, detailed artworks.

Typically, the subjects in his works are everyday items, people or environments. Often these are female figures, animals or outdoor settings common to Addis and Ethiopia and these images are carefully deconstructed and painstakingly rebuilt with specifically-chosen collage pieces.

Yonatan adds a further dimension to his works by selecting collage materials that provide additional description and meaning to the artwork. Whether it is using coloured currency notes to cleverly represent a poker player, or a variety of coloured flowers to represent the female figure, Yonatan’s attention to detail never fails to provide his works additional layers of meaning.
