Sultan Mohamed -- Fine Art
I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1962 and have resided in Seattle, WA since 1982. I received my B.F.A. from the University of Washington in 1991, and a teaching certificate from Western Washington University in 1994.
I am currently teaching art for the Seattle Public School District at Asa Mercer Middle School. I have had the opportunity to return to Ethiopia in order to study traditional paintings and frescos.
As an Artist and educator I believe that the past is intricately linked to the present; they cannot be separated. Although I studied Western Art during my university course work, I have never strayed far from my cultural influences, which are symbolically represented in my art by human figures, colors, lines, and shapes.
