Dawit N.M.

“Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Dawit was only four years old when he nearly went blind. “My mother warned me not to play on this tree because of its poisonous leaves. Me being me, I played on it and ended up with an eye infection. If it wasn’t for our foreign neighbor hearing about my condition I would’ve never got the medicine and would’ve been blind for the rest of my life.”
Eighteen years later, Dawit is using his second chance to create breathtaking work that challenges people’s perception and thoughts of the world around them.”
