ABOUT TEKIE RUSSOM:
Tekie Russom was born and raised in Asmara Eritrea. After he graduated from high school he went to Sawa, the National service in Eritrea. It was in the 5th round and served his country for 9 years. Eritrea is located in East Africa close to Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Yemen. He grew up looking after his brother’s paintings. Tekie's brother was an artist in the 70’s, but he was killed in 1976 by the Ethiopian military dictatorship called the Red terror (or Qey shibir ).
Tekie believed one day he would become an artist like his brother. In 2008 he got a diploma from the Institution of Fine Arts in Ethiopia. He settled in the US in 2010 and became a U.S citizen in 2016. Over the years he worked as a part time artist and participated in numerous art events and exhibitions in east Africa and in the U.S, particularly in Atlanta and in Houston.
Tekie moved to Houston in 2013 and he considered Houston his home town. He finds Houston inspirational for his art through every day things like the vibration of music, the expressions of feelings and considers art a natural reflection of life. Russom is a spontaneous realism, stroke art and mix media artist specializing in Acrylic and Resin .
