Yohannes Mulat Mekonnen (1992) is a multidisciplinary visual artist. working in video, installation, and drawings. Throughout most of his art practices his curiosity has been consistently drawn towards two areas of engagements. The first one is the dynamics of individual–system relations. The other equally fascinating area has been the relation between reality and the myriad ways it is represented.  He received a BFA degree from the Addis Ababa university/ Alle School of Fine Arts and Design, Ethiopia. and a Master of Contemporary Arts  from Tromso Academy of Fine Arts, Norway. He has participated in exhibitions both in his home city Addis Ababa and abroad.
