For Ras Hailu, the way to his 'Banana Art' is the willful strictness that requires just parts of the tree to be utilized as a part of each outline. "Despite all the rich hues and shades existing in my works of art, I don't utilize colors, stains, or varnish."
On the off chance that anybody wishes to visit Ras Hailu at his display/home in Shashemene, they will no doubt discover him in his innovative schedule. He is generally dealing with his energetic garden, which has various kinds of blooms, organic products, vegetables, and herbs or sitting in his studio taking a shot at a choice of his mark arrangements and examining his work.
"I carry on with a straightforward life. I plant to get propelled and supported." He said with a splendid grin, gladly pointing towards the trees and recognizing "my papaya, my tangerine, my moringa tree, my mango, avocado, sweet sap, acrid sap… "
Some portion of his day by day custom is asking and giving acclaim in his garden. "The best activity with blossoms is implore with them. Quarter to six, at night, the blossoms and trees twist down, they say their acclaim. This is nature."
Whenever inquired as to whether there is any association between his craft and his garden he said yes. For example, in a piece titled 'an example of my considerations', one can see delightfully orchestrated blossoms in shades of red and dark colored, they are 'draw in' (the word he utilizes conversely with 'theoretical' ) shaping an infinitive looking circle. "My considerations are the blooms, I take a gander at the blossoms for shapes, I figure out how to mix hues by taking a gander at the dusk. They are my motivation; I don't generally observe much TV. I don't go to listen reggae shows no more, in spite of the fact that I am an artist, I tune in to nature's ensemble."
"God lives in the core of everybody… I lower myself before him, I get my contemplation and bliss tuning in to the winged animals, seeing my canines and feline playing together, taking a gander at these blossoms, I have a decent family, that is proof of his approval."
Ras Hailu makes fine arts roused by nature; his works include the Ethiopian culture, Haille Selassie I, authentic occasions and the guide of Africa. The greater part of his work incorporates cut out symbolisms highlighting ladies wearing customary apparel approaching their every day lives; like setting off to the market, or making espresso.
It is uncommon for a man to devote themselves with such care to shape complex outlines from little natural pieces. A portion of his fine arts took him over 25 years. He at times stops his works for a prolonged timeframe, when the "snapshot of creation isn't in him."
