Jonathan Forisai Mhondorohuma was born in 1974 in Mvurwi. He is the youngest of four children. Jonathan is married to Faith and together they have three children, two boys and a girl. Jonathan started sculpting with stone at the very young age of 10. He loved creative art so much that in 1989, when his friend, Square Chikwanda invited him to the Tengenenge Sculpture Village, he promptly agreed and spent the next six months at Tengenenge learning basic sculpting skills. Jonathan then moved to Harare, where he met the master first- generation sculptor, Joseph Ndandarika
.The late Ndandarika was widely regarded as one of the greatest sculpting talents Zimbabwe has ever known and Jonathan considered it a privilege to be able to work with him. By 1997, Jonathan had established himself as a household name in the sculpting industry. He was invited to join the artist residence program at the prestigious Chapungu Sculpture Park. His sculptures are often inspired by his family.
