PICTURED: Ethiopian-Born Artist Behind Beyonce's Pregnancy Photo

Beyonce's pregnancy announcement portrait is now the most liked Instagram post of all time. But who is the artist behind the image?

The photo of Beyonce wearing a veil and cradling her stomach has now been liked over eight million times.


This might not be a big deal for the 35-year-old singer. But it's a huge accomplishment for Awol Erizku, the artist who took the famous photo - and the entire series of pregnancy photos that Beyonce has since uploaded to her website.

Born in Ethiopia, 28-year-old Awol grew up in the South Bronx area of New York.

In 2014, he graduated from Yale University with a masters in fine art and his work often fuses photography, video installations and sculpture.
