Artist of the moment….Stalin Tafura

Tafura attended college at Ranch House College studying international tourism. His work is the blend of traditional shona motifs such as mother and child but he also is a master at using  a particular stone to help add a feeling and mystique to his works.

Tafura is currently based out of Loveland, Colorado.

The artist started out as an assistant to both his grandfather and father helping them to polish up and finish large works.
