Footnotes

  • One of the most prominent, eccentric and deeply philosophical artists in Ethiopia, Tibebe Terrfa spends most of his time in his studio, making art while listening to his vast collection of jazz. His works explore the changes that time and the weather have on the arts. Passionate about horticulture, Tibebe's artwork is often filled with a profusion of indigenous and imported plants from the different places he has travelled.
