Misheck Masamvu was born 1980 in Penhalonga, Zimbabwe. He studied art with Helen Lieros at Gallery Delta in Harare and at the Kunstakademie in Munich. His practice ranges from paintings, drawings and sculpture. He has participated in a number of exhibitions including the 54th Venice biennale where he represented Zimbabwe, the São Tomé e Príncipe biennale and the Dakar biennale. Masamvu questions the continent’s current trajectory by dramatically exposing psychosocial and political realities. Recent work by Masamvu seeks to raise a conscious state of ‘being’ in relation to humanitarian acts not prescribed from a charter but from a pursuit of acts that retain dignity.
