Mekyas Getahun Is Our Instagram Winner!

Posted on 27 Apr 16:09
Congratulations to artist Mekyas Getahun, our latest Instagram winner!
Mekyas is a full-time artist based in Las Vegas who creates vibrant, abstract acrylic paintings.



Mekyas is self-taught and has only recently transitioned from drawing to fluid art. In this short time, he has absolutely mastered the art of the pour, demonstrating a level of control over a technique known for its lack of control. His cell work is flawless and his pieces burst with electrifying color and energy.





Mekyas prepares his birch wood panels by taping off the sides, then pours his acrylics over top. He allows the pieces to dry for 2-3 weeks before adding a layer of ArtResin. If he feels the piece needs it, he will add an additional resin layer.




Mekyas says that ArtResin has had a profound impact on his art: it has given his paintings a professional finish that has taken his work (and his business) to a whole new level of exposure.
