The Unmistakable Artwork of Gilela Mesfin

The Unmistakable Artwork of Gilela Mesfin

Gelila Mesfin is a digital and traditional Ethiopian artist who finds inspiration from African culture and black women. She finds inspiration from color and patterns influenced by African fabric.

“My subject matter heavily focuses on black women because for a long period of time they were misrepresented and not fully appreciated as muses in the art community. My art is meant to uplift and celebrate the rich ancestry, heritage, culture and beauty that black women posses.”

Playing around with my drawing by inverting the colors, in need of inspiration 🧐
