Sketches of a trip. December 2016 - January 2017. Introducing Biniam Tekle.

In this post, I would like to introduce you to Biniam Tekle, a very gifted young Eritrean artist.

Part of his art is posted below. Included are some examples of his various art exhibits in Eritrea.

I am impressed with the growing number of artists (fine arts, film, music and etc.) in Eritrea.

In order for the arts to go to the next level, accommodate the interest, be sustainable, harness the talent and be centralized, the establishment of a school of fine arts, a film school,and a school of music is of great importance. Graduates from these schools would be highly disciplined, highly knowledgeable critics, and be armed with ethics. Since artists are at the forefront of Eritrea's soft power, an active role of the diaspora (financial, teaching, technical and etc.) should be solicited.

Biniam is also a sculptor.
