From crowded arenas to the solace of his studio, artist and 2-time National Art Battle Champion, Yared Nigussu connects with the world around him through his highly expressive paintings. He engages viewers with his upbeat energy, genuine personality, and fast–paced painting style, which has elevated this rising star throughout the Canadian visual arts community.
We joined Yared in his studio to discuss what motivates his art, the rush he experiences when competing in Art Battle, and of course, to capture just how he creates a painting in 20 minutes. The results are a visually stunning portrait and a inspiring look into this creative mind.
