In my life a rose is:
A gift to my mother
the city I live in
The game I won
The art I paint
Roses, prints, and custom framing will be coming to downtown LA July 06th. Ayele will showcase his featured work using a multi-layer, mix medium rose inside a custom built wood frame. Accompanied by several prints and framed portraits od African royalty.
These showing will feature works Ayele has been focusing on creating roses; as a gift to the City of Roses, Portland as well as to his two-time Rose Bowl championship teammates. He creates these using a multi-layer, mix medium rose inside a custom built wood frame. Each rose and frame is individually created and built. Accompanied by framed illustrative images of the female form, which I simply call ‘Her’.
Kings, Queens, Khan, Princes, and Princess. I want to show my audience the fragmented memories of the past. The shared past of greatness of those men and women of the old world and kingdoms. I wish to create images people can reflect upon- forgotten royalty, forgotten tales of the past, forgotten self. I wish to bring to the forefront some of our greatest ancestors.
