About this Item
Tashinga graduated in 2019 with a Diploma in Fine Art from the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Art Studio, specializing in painting and printmaking. Over the past couple of years, he has been working to develop his own unique approach which blends painting and printmaking together, working with monotypes on canvas interlaced with painting and spray paint. As a spoken word poet he is also interested in the engagement that is possible through subtle incorporation of automatic writing in his canvases. His works float in and out of figuration and have the quality of day-dreams, an escape from the here and now into art and its possibilities. Recent exhibitions include Green Shoots, 2019, National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Rembrandt at 350, National Gallery of Zimbabwe, 2019.
This lot is featured as one of the finalists for the Emerging Painting Invitational Prize (EPI). This is an international art platform developed by the Emerging African Art Galleries Association (EAAGA) to support and recognise the excellence of emerging painters living and working on the continent.
