Art is in my blood. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
Born and raised in Addis, Daniel has always known that he would be an artist. As child, he would will sketch books with drawing and imagery. His dedication to art was spurred by the support of his family and friends. Raised in an Orthodox household, the church and his family’s religious community had significant influences on his art and continues to do so up to the present day.
Daniel has participated in exhibitions in Ethiopia, Germany, Holland, and Sudan. Life as an artist has not always been easy, but Daniel says, “I can’t imagine doing anything other than being an artist. It’s my nature.”
