Adolf Tafadzwa Tega



Tega was born in Harare and is a painter who is often interested in exploring density. Whether it be density of the masses of people moving in time or space or purely looking at density as a compositional form; his works give us vibrant landscapes to contemplate on. Tega studied art at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, where he had his first group show. He moved to South Africa in 2008, and joined Good Hope Art Studios. He produced his first solo show for AVA Gallery in Cape Town in 2012, and his second for World Art in 2014. Tega’s work can be found in several institutional and private collections, including Spier and the University of Cape Town. Recently, Tega was chosen for Nando’s Creative Exchange 2020, followed by an exhibition at Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival. His work is currently on view in a solo exhibition called “Africa Without Borders,” at Gallery Momo.
