When Yadesa Bojia immigrated to Seattle from the East African country of Ethiopia, he was unsure what to do
with his life. Passionate about art, he struggled to translate this into a viable and sustaining career. Now he is a successful professional painter and graphic designer who is internationally recognized for designing the African Union flag.

In his show, Truth Be Told, at A/NT Gallery this month, Yadesa depicts black people in mugshots. Their crime? being black. The placards they hold go beyond traditional assumptions. They are more than just their race– 
they are fathers, mothers, activists, sisters, artists, fashionistas, humanitarians.
