Adam and Hewan አዳም እና ሔዋን
Yatreda ያጥሬዳ is a family of artists from Ethiopia creating in the style of tizita-nostalgia and longing for the past.
Led by Kiya Tadele, the group creates artwork which balances the new, like blockchain technology, with the old, preserving classic legends of historical and cultural significance.
This blend suggests the timeline of African history doesn’t simply end, and the stories are not finished. Yatreda is about rediscovering Africa’s original self once againWatch behind the scenes videos View the Artwork
