Episode #33 – Fanuel Leul

“I am a digital artist who currently lives and works in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Africa. In my artwork, traditional elements are brought to life with contrasting and harmonious compositions of futuristic technology. I would say my distinctive personal style has an Afrofuturistic theme that emanates joy and peace, a way that most of Africa is currently not depicted.

Even though I have a BFA from Alle School of Fine Arts in Industrial Design and Fine Art, I consider myself a self-taught artist. I have been creating digital artwork for five years now, honing my theme and skills throughout the years. My vision is to re-awaken and inspire other African artists so that we get to tell our stories in our own way.”
