Solomon Mugutso is a Johannesburg-based Zimbabwean-born visual artist. His work is inspired by the environment, personal experiences, and diverse individuals he has encountered. Mugutso’s art focuses on African stories that relay messages of hope and unity. His preferred medium is sand, which he collects from the different places he visits and combines into one painting; a comment on the interconnectedness of life as a whole. Mugutso has exhibited in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Sweden, recently at the group exhibition AIR curated by the Alliance Française in March 2021.
