Zerihun Seyoum paints from the inspiration of his surroundings and from experiencing his own emotions. He believes that there are still new ideas to discover and to explore after he creates each painting. For him, art is always original in its expression of ideas and emotions, and he feels that there must inevitably be some connection between the viewer and the artist. With words there is always more to say, but to Zerihun, painting says so much more.
There are no boundaries in the way in which Zerihun chooses to explore colour, texture and composition. One of the first things to strike you about Zerihun’s paintings is his use of bold colour and line to create a sense of energy and movement in each of his works. He is inspired by the fusions in life and fearlessly paints images that revels, reveals, unearths and discovers. As you examine his concepts and expression of fused identity and fused environments, it is clear that he recognizes the beautiful detail of the convergence and clash of the traditional and the modern.
