Olana Janfa Just Be Hot Adults Tee
Kicking off the Culture Makers program is a new exhibition by Melbourne-based rising star, Ethiopian-Norwegian artist Olana Janfa. Presented at the Immigration Museum from 21 April - 24 August, Janfa’s exhibition What is your Gov’ment Name will reflect on the artist’s migrant experience across a series of works that showcase his trademark colour, humour and engaging social commentary.
A self-taught artist who speaks five languages, Addis Ababa-born Janfa has overcome multiple barriers on his journey – emigrating from Ethiopia to Norway as a teenager, then settling in Melbourne in 2015.
A prolific painter whose practise now extends to book illustration, fashion collaborations and large-scale mural projects, Janfa typically works with acrylic, oil and pastels on a mix of recycled timber and found materials.
