MORE ABOUT THE STONE:

Nesbert Mukomberanwa

Born in 1969 in the Buhera District of Manicaland in Zimbabwe’ Nesbert began studying sculpture in 1987, under the guidance and mentorship of his uncle, Nicholas Mukomberanwa, a world acclaimed artist of the Shona Sculpture Movement. Within two years, Nesbert felt that he had attained enough experience and exposure to work independently of his uncle enabling him to develop and pursue his own style. He went on to establish his own studio at his home in Chitungwiza, where he worked for 10 years and developed a distinctive style which gained him international recognition. In 1998 Nesbert relocated to the countryside. There he felt at peace with nature and could free his mind to concentrate fully on his art. He went on to establish “The Village Gallery” , where he displayed his work and that of other selected artists from Chitungwiza. His work is also displayed at Chitungwiza Art Centre. Notable exhibitions include, Reece Gallery (USA) with Henry Munyaradzi and Nicholas Mukomberanwa among others (2005), “Form versus Content” Franco Namibian Cultural Centre, Windhoek, Namibia (2004), Group exhibition and solo workshops in Memphis, USA (2002)

ABOUT THE STONE:

Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.
