Dawit Adnew's (b.1973) paintings conjure a sumptuous, dream-like idyll, where figures pose languorously in beautifully patterned dresses in gardens overflowing with luxuriant plants, flowers, and fruits. An atmosphere of perpetual calm prevails, a suggestion of twilight, where colour and pattern are sources of pure pleasure, as in Matisse or Gauguin.

His practice is informed by studies in African masks and iconography, and his use of patterns and fabric emerges from his experience as a textile designer.

Dawit is based in Addis Ababa and studied at the Alle School of Fine Arts and Design. He previously practiced as a textile designer. Dawit has been included in various exhibitions in Addis Ababa, Kenya, and Malta.
