Born in 1981 in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia – Yared Nigussu was awarded a scholarship in Northern France where he learned the skills that will one day make him one of Vancouver’s most celebrated artists.
Since he has moved to Vancouver, Yared’s work has been celebrated in Vienna, France and throughout Canada. His live performances are incredible to watch as he paints haunting to helplessly happy pieces accompanied by live music. This performance accompanied by local favourites the Sons of Granville.
Yared is moving back to France at the end of the month – perhaps your last chance to meet the future star and purchase pieces at a reasonable price.
