MERID TAFESSE

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
NOVEMBER 11- DECEMBER 12, 2016
 
 
 
 
 
Born in Ethiopia in 1974, a direct descendant of the Royal Solomonic House of Ethiopia through his mother, Merid was raised in Addis Ababa by his well-traveled banker father whose extensive collection of books and international travel influenced Merid's trajectory as an artist. His mother innate artistry and his frequent visits to her home in Piassa also inspired the budding artist. Admitted into the Addis Ababa University School of Fine Arts and Design in 1994, he developed his ideas and skills parallel to his social consciousness and intellect. Graduating in 1998, his introspective connections to the philosophies of Emperor Haileselassie I, the music of Bob Marley and the prose of Khalil Gibran and Oscar Wilde led him to explore the potential impact of his art as well as his first residency and exhibition in Jerusalem in 1999.
Though a prodigious painter, charcoal was his exclusive medium from 1999 to 2009. "No mixing, drying,....needed so I can express myself spontaneously," says Merid. His deeply nuanced and articulate charcoal works have led to numerous solo and group exhibits and residencies at home and abroad. Atlanta based art magazine, Creative Loafing writes, "Even if he has never been to a...place before, Tafesse has a knack for capturing its particular atmosphere. His sensitivity to social issues coupled with his eye for detail is evident.....Merid enjoys his space and autonomy, confident in the knowledge that every moment is to be relished and every experience creates a new canvas.
