Who is Madprophet Productions?
Based in NY, Madprophet Productions, for now, is a one-man show run by ME :)
My name is Betemariam Gebryes and I have been doing visual arts for as long as I can remember. The first time I ever got paid for my art was when I was around the age of 4 or 5 when my neighbors started buying my art for the new Year. I was born and raised in Ethiopia and every new year our community had the tradition of giving a dollar to every kid that brought art to their house on that day. I started with 3 colored pencils and ripped sheets of paper from my notebook and over time I managed to buy more equipment to better my craft. Not long after I also got into photography.
As a kid Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) was one of my favorite artists due to how versatile this man was and how talented he was in every aspect of the arts he decided to pursue. In one of his interviews, he mentioned how he got his name, which was from the Wu-Tang Name generator and as soon as I found that out I went straight to that site and put my name in and got “MAD PROPHET” I took that name and never looked back since.
Summer of 2017 I finished up a Bloomberg ARTs internship and by then I had made enough money to buy my first official camera which I use to this day and after a year of getting used to the camera, I started booking shoots.
My goal with everything I've built so far and for the work I will be creating in the future is to display the forms of art that give me the joy to create. In time I would like to build a community of artists that are not limited to one box of creative expression, a team full of swiss army knives if you will. I want to create a production full of diversely talented folks who can come together to teach and learn from one another.
MadProphet Production captures poignant and profound moments with a creative twist. I offer exceptional personal service for every one of my clients, so get in touch today and book your session.
