Painter, Artist, Medium
Seble was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in a family where she was one of six children. From an extremely young age Seble was always inclined to sports, music and art. She got into a lot of trouble with the teachers and her parents through her school years when she was caught drawing instead of applying herself to other subjects. However at the age of 12 her talent was discovered by an art teacher and despite challenges, her work was acknowledged and displayed in the school. This helped her move ahead and develop her passion. By the time she was in high school she had already had a first real exhibition and went onto studying art at the only Ehtiopian Art College to graduate with a BA in Art and a certificate in industrial design.
In addition to painting, she also produces and creates jewellery using local materials and traditional techniques. When asked what inspires her to draw and create, she responded that she is motivated by nature, culture and traditions and believes that everything should co exist in harmony. All her paintings have strong concepts and are based on her experiences and visions of how the world could be. She uses acrylic and oil mainly as her medium of painting.
