The talented Gelila Kahsay is a young habeshan, self-taught artist who is best known for her impressive acrylic paintings and even more impressive coffee art.

While a lot of her acrylic work is abstract – she tries to paints her feelings and emotions – her coffee art typically involves portraiture of people she looks up to and important world events.
