The Modernization of Ethiopian Art is not totally with the influence of the out side world but it was a kind of integrated. It is the gradual integration of the ancient teaching methods with that of the newly introduced teachings of the out side world (with students sent to the out side world to study art).

At historical context. Sele, which means “art,” has a long history in the country. Thus anybody wanting to do Sele required an art education of some kind.

An art education had existed in the nation for several centuries; the church school system prepared scholars, known as Arat-Ayna (Four-Eyed Ones) who were also artists. Considered as scholars and as masters of the arts of traditional instruction and scholarship.

The concept of modernizing Ethiopian art education was born as part of the overall modernizing of Ethiopia, which began during the second part of the 19th century. This was a period that saw the beginnings of unification, military reform, the birth of fairly well developed literary Amharic, and the establishment of schools

we set the clock of the modernization of art education in 1887. This was when the church trained artists; self-taught artists from all around the nation were lured to Entoto

In less than a quarter of a century, the art modernization movement shifted from its center in Entoto to Addis Ababa in part and to its primary center in Arat Kilo.
In the 1940s, the modern art movement began to bloom with the works of Ethiopian artists like, first with Abebe Wolde Giorgis, Agegnehu Engeda a Zerihun Dominique, and then.
In the 1960s a new trend in art occupied the minds of Ethiopian artist. Like Ale Felege Selam, Skunder Bogossian, Gebrekirstos desta, Maitre Artist Afework Tekele  and others lead the trend and introduced new modern forms of visual creativity into Ethiopian art.

Ethiopian art in the mid 1980s reflected the composition of Ethiopian life more than a decade into the 1974 revolution: what is modern in it derived for better or worse from the ideas and inventions of both eastern and western Europe. What is Ethiopian in it adhered to a traditional be designed by political and economic realities.
After the revolution of 1974, international socialist realism of officially displaced the remnants of modernism that had begun to influence the painting of student at the fine arts school in A.A in the 1960s
