Seeing Tadesse Mesfin’s painting – Kelem Kebiw [The Painter] at the age of 16 was a life changing experience for Henok Getachew. Since then, he was immersed in art. Born in 1976, Henok later on went to the Alle School of Fine Arts and Design and graduated with a certificate in General Art in 1997. Since then, Henok has painted dozens of paintings, mainly on the walls of new hotels and restaurants in town and worked for beverage companies as a sign painter. He started doubting his artistic acumen and whether he will be able to live off his promotional paintings when digital art and signage took over the pictorial advertisement business.
