More News From Zimbabwe With Kim McDonald

Being a second-generation Zimbabwean and wanting to move to America, to help promote stone sculpture and artists.

A song by Neil Diamond comes to mind "America", and really that's what it's all about the American dream. And in our case, helping the Zimbabwean artists, these artists have God-given talents. 

These world masters, and as such, we need to promote their art to the world to show what creativity exists within these artists.

And I'd like to take you on our journey and the number of little video clips over the next. I don't know how many months, but I hope you enjoy it. And thank you for watching.

Hi, I'm Kim McDonald, managing director of Artistic Africa, talking to you right now from Zimbabwe, and the year is 2021. We've just had new year and we are having a major Corona (COVID) outbreak as in the whole world.

Artistic Africa, last year, took it upon itself to finance a number of artists to the tune of $10,000. It was donated to them on a monthly basis to give them a subsistence allowance, because there is no tourism coming into Zimbabwe and their normal lines of income have dried up because of the Corona (COVID) virus.

Family and Sons are special

Pillar of support to me as a father and has been so supportive of his mother also. And I'd like to thank you, Mark, for your help in keeping this business going in these extreme times. Thank you also for watching our videos. Please keep watching.

I am a born and bred second-generation Zimbabwean,vand have a fluent command of English and the Zimbabwean Shona and Zezuro languages.

My knowledge of the local culture and customs is a huge benefit in communicating and dealing with the rural communities where all the stone is sourced.

My knowledge of the sourcing market and excellent reputation in the region give Moyo Collection the distinguished difference in a sea of other galleries worldwide. I work in the local artist community cooperatives and I feel that we represent our local artist with the best advantages. We work closely with our artists and their families to help them get their art to the world..

I can most often be found at home, under a campfire in the African Savannah where I feel one with my environment.
