An interrogator of postcolonial hangover cultures with definitions that delineate contemporary African and Zimbabwean art forms. My work is constantly being directed towards becoming a search and a suggestive mould and antidote for some of technical and ideological challenges that face post modernistic Africa in this case Zimbabwe. Since early 2003 I have engaged myself in a pennant like pilgrimage, not to use “handed over” or culturally sublet material in my work. This move in my work has pushed towards a direction where I’m in continuous search of new material and ideologies that define contemporary Zimbabwean art. In this “New found” penance and separation I have developed defining lines such as “paint on canvas is for wimps in this part of the world” this has brought about a radical disengagement from conventional patterns of art. I have witnessed several interesting developments in my students who I have exposed to this principle. My teaching experience at the Harare Polytechnic has always been characterized by campaign traits that seek to push the culturally complacent ideas, from being consumerist to being innovative and solution hunting landmarks. I have used several alternative materials in my work from animal hides, found material soil, animal bones and other cultural and anthropological relevant material. In this I have come up with and developed theories such as the “energy of objects” and “therapeutic points” in the process of art making, My search for new media and alternative audience has led me to develop and implement the idea of art therapy in hospitals .I currently facilitate a volunteer based art therapy program for kids with cancer at Parirenyatwa group of Hospitals in Harare.

Edsor Colaco

2016-10-20T10:20:43+00:00

Edsor Colaco was born in 1982-Mozambique, his introduction to art was in 1996, when at the age of fourteen, his uncle, Luis Meque, the well known artist, brought him from Chimoio in Mozambique to Harare, Zimbabwe, to live and study. He was inspired by Luis Meque, and was grief stricken by his early death in 1998. Consequently, without means, he had no option but to return to Chimoio to continue his schooling. He was, however, determined to become a painter. He has pursued his creative instinct by exploring himself and his talent, and developed an individual approach in his work. Edsor Colaco’s concern in art is to show his creative ideas and expressions to cope with our daily life in a personal point of view and understanding, as an opportunity to express himself and giving words for the innocent things or people that do not have opportunity to express themselves, using both the figure and still life subjects. Often with the use of collage and personal manuscripts, reviving lost pages, burnt and charred scripts, which in their colour portrays poetically the land, and a sense of stillness and solitude, yet nevertheless, retaining the dream of Africa.

2016-10-20T10:23:18+00:00

Brian Bradshaw was born in Bolton, Lancashire, England, in 1923. He went to the Bolton School of Art and Manchester Regional College of Art. After World War II demobilization in 1948, Bradshaw won a Royal Scholarship to the Royal College of Art, London. In 1951, his final year, he won the Silver Medal for work of special distinction, the Engraving and Architecture prizes and was awarded an Associateship of the College (First Class). In the same year, he was elected Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-etchers and Engravers (A.R.E). He then won the Prix de Rome and spent a further two years based at the British Academy in Rome, travelling and working in Greece, Spain, France and Germany. When he returned to England in 1953, Bradshaw produced work for an exhibition of paintings in Manchester, while residing in a cottage in the Welsh Mountains near Snowdon. While working in England at industrial and moorland landscapes and in Wales at mountain and seascapes, Bradshaw won numerous art awards including British and Welsh Art Council prizes and was awarded Associateships and Honorary Memberships of various U.K. Academies. The first of his solo exhibitions was held at Salford City Art Gallery in 1953. Since then he has held numerous one-man exhibitions in the U.K, U.S.A., South Africa, Australia and Zimbabwe, including four retrospectives. In 1955 Bradshaw was appointed Vice Chairman of the British Parliamentary Committee on Art Education and continued in this post until 1960 when he was invited to South Africa to take the Chair of Fine Arts at Rhodes University. His influence on the work of his students was remarkable and a new style of painting emerged from the Eastern Cape. In 1964 he [...]

Chiko Chazunguza

2016-10-20T10:24:00+00:00

Chikonzero (Chiko) Chazunguza is a Zimbabwean visual artist and provocateur, whose multimedia artworks raise searching questions about the postcolonial condition and about the unstable role and nature of art in its postcolonial context. In 1987, Chiko won a scholarship to study at the Institute of Pictorial Arts in Sofia Bulgaria, where he earned his MFA and was trained in the classical modes of printmaking, drawing and painting, later turning to memories of indigenous Zimbabwean art as a source of inspiration for experiment. Returning home in 1994, Chiko deliberately set out to re-connect with local modes of fabrication and visuality, exploring their areas of aesthetic overlap with Western traditions to produce new visual forms and new kinds of visual knowledge. Techniques in shrine construction, ritual behavioral codes governing the safety of forest hunters, skills in parsing the oblique signs and messages of the ancestors, and the intricate conventions of rural ornamentation are amongst those elements of indigenous aesthetic life with which Chiko has reshaped ideas about parameters of art. Investigating indigenous knowledge systems and probing forgotten (pre)colonial histories for clues that might illumine our way forward in a complex world, Chiko’s works exist as models for individual thought and action that are sensitive to the needs of the collective. Amongst his most compelling works are those that reinstate for the viewer a sense of ritual order and of life’s deeper mysteries, alongside proffering incisive, yet subtle social analysis. Chiko was born and raised in the high density suburb of Highfield, in Harare, Zimbabwe. He is the recipient of numerous awards and has exhibited in solo shows in Zimbabwe, Canada, and the U.S.A. www.chikochazunguza.com Year Exhibition

Arthur Azevedo

2016-10-20T10:27:22+00:00

Arthur Azevedo was born in Zimbabwe in 1935. Between 1950 and 1954 he trained as a teacher at St Augustine’s College, Cape Town, and then returned to Harare to teach at St Louis Mountbatten School. In 1956 he went to Rome with the intention of becoming a Roman Catholic priest and for six years he studied philosophy and theology at the Pontifical Urban University ‘de Propaganda Fide’. His interest in art, at that time, was confined to painting and for a short period he studied under Gustovo Solimene, a painter with leanings towards the Neopolitan School. During his vacations he roamed and painted in the Castelli Romani and Alban Hills region. Returning to Zimbabwe in 1962, having abandoned his intention of becoming a priest, he settled in Harare and took up teaching at St John’s School, where he continues to teach today. His interest in sculpture began in 1963 as a result of his dissatisfaction and lack of fulfilment as a painter. Scrap and found iron and steel were chosen mostly by chance and soon became his dominant medium. He developed his style and techniques in metal sculpture alone. His progress was stimulated, in the early days, by the Annual Exhibitions of the National Gallery, the Weld Art Sculpture Competitions and commissions by architects, notably Tony Wales-Smith, who provided the first challenge to use this medium in architecture. Married with three children, he lives in Harare.
