    Stealing Africa: How Britain Looted the Continent’s Artifacts

    Around 90 to 95 percent of African cultural heritage is held overseas. The British Museum – which holds around 73,000 African objects – makes no mention of how the spears got there, nor of the town’s resistance against “punitive” colonization.

    Africa’s Mineral Treasure Chest Could be a Huge Boost for Development – if State Predators are Kept at Bay

    Mining companies are seen routinely as a vulnerable fixed investment and thus prey to be extorted before the resource runs out. Africa could be, in mining, the continent of tomorrow. But it always will be just that if governments go about managing mining companies in a predatory fashion. Instead of engaging the sector as a […]

    A Leopard Doesn’t Change Its Spots

    VOA Today we talk about change. The world changes. Situations change. But what about people? Do we ever really change? To answer this, we turn to the animal world to describe changes in personality and behavior. A common expression states that as we get older it gets harder to change and harder to learn new behavior. That […]

About the Artist 

Afewerk Tekle (22 October 1932 – 10 April 2012) was one of Ethiopia’s most celebrated artists, particularly known for his paintings on African and Christian themes as well as his stained glass.[1]

Born in Ankober to Feleketch Yamatawork and Tekle Mamo, Afewerk grew up under the Italian occupation during the Second World War. Following the war, in 1947, Afewerk decided that he wanted to help rebuild Ethiopia and elected to travel to England to study mining engineering. Before departing, Afewerk, together with other students leaving to study overseas, was addressed by Emperor Haile Selassie. Afewerk recalls being told “you must work hard, and when you come back do not tell us what tall buildings you saw in Europe, or what wide streets they have, but make sure you return equipped with the skills and the mindset to rebuild Ethiopia”

Afewerk had already shown talent as an artist as a child, decorating several walls in his home town. Whilst at boarding school in England, this talent was recognised and encouraged by his teachers. As a result, Afewerk was persuaded to switch from engineering and enroll in Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. He then went on to the Slade School of Art where he studied painting, sculpture and architecture.
