Asmara Eritrea Museums
For 15 years, we have been working with local artists and the refugee community to produce art exhibitions that honor the work of refugee artists. We highlight the art of refugees and their contribution to the art, culture and culture of the region.
Even though we do not hold art events in our galleries every year, we enjoy the work of these artists. If you are interested in seeing more beautiful pieces or buying artworks from the Ermias, please contact us and we will contact you directly. You can also visit Zrinka's online shop to see more paintings or buy one of her works.
Eritreans living in Miami will visit this exhibition frequently and are likely to plan their next trip to Eritrea. Thousands of young people have fled the country in recent years, while many wealthy Eritreans travel abroad to see their families and enjoy the beautiful tree-lined avenues of the city and its beautiful beaches.
UN sanctions imposed in 2009 were lifted, which could lead to more foreign investment. Eritrea's fully developed war economy, with its high unemployment rate, has been eased.
But Africa's secretive modernist city fears that similar mistakes could be made if there is no strict regulation. This work describes the history of Eritrean art and modern architecture from its beginnings in the 19th century to the present day.
Zrinka works in all media and disciplines, but his current series of liquid paintings depicts life on a microscopic level. The energy flowing from what he created can later be absorbed and revived by the viewer in place of the visual sense. This work is inspired by a meditation on Mala pearls, in which peace and love are channeled.
In 2000 Ermias graduated from the Asmara School of Fine Art, where he studied painting, sculpture and printmaking. He attended his first art exhibition at the school and after graduation he took part in exhibitions at the Nelson Mandela Art Museum, including the first exhibition of his work in South Africa in 2007. In 2008 he visited the Eritrean Art Museum in Eritrea, in 2009 he moved to South Africa and in 2010 to the United States.
The Eritreans filled the museum to the brim and no one followed the rules of the Asmara World Heritage Exhibition, which opened on the first day of October 2012 at the Eritrean Museum of Art and Culture.
Even in its more modest form, it was immense, filling up with capacity for a televised sporting event. Even more offensive, above everything hovers an icon of Italian futurism from the era of Italian futurism, built in 1938. Like most African cities, we have a tradition of respecting the ideals of the Italian colonists, who in 1938 drew up a plan to build an air base at Asmara, the first of its kind in the Middle East, which has been observed ever since.
Hotels, offices, villas and apartments were designed for the climate, balconies and courtyards were built and hotels and office buildings well - made. While the early buildings were laden with decoration and a multitude of historical references, generations of buildings in modernist language followed, the earliest of which was the Casa Fascio (now the Ministry of Education). The masonry villa and the offices of the water companies are inspired by the Tuscan Middle Ages, The Romanesque details are suitably detailed, while the brick and concrete buildings in the city centre, such as the hotel and the office building, are well finished and well furnished.
The building is reminiscent of the Florentine Renaissance and has a portico reminiscent of the Ospedale degli Innocenti, approaching a sweeping staircase that leads from the street to the terraced garden. If you observe this combination from behind, you are homesick as an Eritrean citizen, but not in a bad way.
Nakfa was established when the country split from neighboring Ethiopia and was meant to symbolize the capital that was bidding to become the Singapore of Africa. Three years after its disclosure, Eritrea entered a bloody border war with Ethiopia that cost tens of thousands of lives and halted its development for two decades. The mini-boom in Asmara came to an abrupt halt as it entered an era of isolationism, the city's youth were drafted into the front line, and many returned to their homes in the north - east and south - east of the nation. There was a period of economic growth, but also an increase in crime and corruption, and Eritrea became a military state.
The opening of the border suggested that Eritrea could provide inland access to the coast, and a new focus was on the port of Massawa. The radial street plan of the city was adapted to make the best use of the available winds. Narrow blocks of streets were so inclined that they could absorb any shade. This sprawl allowed the city to be supported by the diaspora, which sold land on the outskirts of the city to generate hard currency.
