Lovemore Kambudzi

Zimbabwean 1978- 

Lovemore Kambudzi was born and grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe. He completed his secondary education in 1995 at St. Peters Secondary School where he excelled in art, enabling him to study an art foundation course at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios between 1996 and 1998. On graduating, he received a young artist of promise Award of Distinction at the 1998 annual exhibition. Kambudzi’s highly detailed and vibrant canvases, which comment on everyday life in Zimbabwe, are characterised by Tachism, a painting style where images are created by daubs of colour. Acting as a social critic, Kambudzi satirically documents the economic and political hardships and suffering of the people of Zimbabwe, from corruption to food and petrol shortages.

Kambudzi has received multiple awards and prizes for his work, including winning the Commonwealth Arts and Crafts Award in 2003 where the prize was an eight-month scholarship in New Zealand. He has exhibited widely in Zimbabwe, Europe, and the United States and his work is represented in public collections in Zimbabwe and in private collections worldwide.
