Tafadzwa Masudi

Zimbabwean 1988- 

Tafadzwa Masudi is a Zimbabwean-born self-taught artist who lives and works in Cape Town. He specializes in painting and sewing. He started painting at the age of sixteen in Harare while assisting a friend of the family who introduced him to the visual arts. In 2010 he migrated to South Africa and in 2020, having been laid off from a job in a clothing factory, he started painting full-time to reflect on his environmental and social experiences as a foreigner in a new country.

Africa First brought Masudi's work onto the international stage by organizing his first international solo exhibition at Gordon Gallery in Israel in 2022. Africa First also included Masudi in a booth in Paris at the Also Known As Africa art fair and introduced his work to Monti 8 gallery where he participated in a group exhibition.
