Artist Statement

“My works reveal a keen following of Zimbabwe’s political, economic and cultural history in the context of post-colonial, post-independence Africa. My deep understanding of Zimbabwean, African and International geopolitics has shaped the way I analyze events, and subsequently metamorphoses this into rich and provocative social commentary. I colorfully depict some of the “subtle ironies”, dramatic events & urban legends, and “chaos and conquests” in the creation of the Zimbabwe Nation. My current series is ambitious, all- encompassing and national in stature and attempts to tell the whole story of Zimbabwe, touching on the colonial era, the Independence era, and contemporary Zimbabwe through the eyes of a patriot, an entrepreneur and an artist.”
