With work that is technically impressive but also conceptually fresh, Peter was one of four finalists in the 8th National Arts Merit Awards in 2009.
He was born in 1980 and in 1995 he joined well-known artist Raymond Chirambadare to train to be a sculptor.
Peter says, “I was ready to learn because I was talented in art. Raymond was kind and patient and so I managed to learn easily … now it’s my career for life.”
Peter assisted Raymond for five years and they worked together as partners for a further four years until Raymond passed away in 2006.
Peter now works independently at the Chitungwiza Arts Centre.
Peter’s work has been displayed in galleries in Germany, South Africa, the Netherlands and the United States amongst others.
Apologies that we have no new work currently by Peter but hope to have for our Christmas exhibition in November.
