Mugabe is an emerging Zimbabwean self taught paper collage artist based in Harare where he also works. He started drawing at a young age and in his early twenties he came across paper collage art and developed a deep interest in it. His subject matter mostly consists of people going through their daily routines as well as themes around childhood, which represent a need to reconnect to his own childhood as he considers this the happiest phase of his life. Johnson has exhibited his work at the Wild Geese Art Festival 2018 where one of his pieces won the "Most Unusual Work on Show" Award and the Artists In The Stream X exhibition at Gallery Delta where another of his pieces was awarded a certificate of merit.
