About

Tegene Kunbi's Burning Spear is colorful with stripes of yellow, pink, red, green, blue, white, and black. Kunbi's deliberate compositions of geometric form and color express the artist’s constant mind’s eye view on his native landscape, its clothing and the mural paintings of his homeland. His rhythmic compositions translate his African roots – the lay of the land, the narrow streets, and the color-saturated bustling, crowded marketplaces filled with textiles and daily necessities. Brushstrokes and washes of paint vary from light and translucent to thick and voluminous, the resulting surface rich with texture and a history of saturated layers built one on another. Recent exhibitions include Margaret Thatcher Projects and the Goethe Institute (Göttingen, DE.) The artist is the recipient of the prestigious DAAD scholarship
