Beautiful artwork and well worth a look. Tegegne is a pleasure to meet and his gallery offers an oasis of calm amongst the hussle and bussle of Lalibela town. Am very glad i found this place.

Tegegne is very friendly and welcoming. His art is refreshingly different to the other local art you find in Ethiopia. Definitely worth the visit!

In Lalibela you can find a lot of beautiful souvenirs. But in Fine Art Gallery I fould overwhelmed paintings. Unquiet touches of brusch, colours and shadows - you can almost feel the move in narrow Lalibela's streets and the heat of summer days. If you...More
