Artist of the moment….Nesbert Mukomberanwa

Nesbert Mukomberanwa was born in Buhera, Zimbabwe in the year 1969. He learned to sculpt from his famous uncle, a first generation shona artist named Nicholas Mukomberanwa. The artist studied under his renowned uncle for two years before striking out on his own.

The family has at least 8 professional artists so look for their name to come frequently here the next couple of weeks. Gotta love those art family dynasties!

price range information: Works range from $500 to $4,000.

Nesbert Mukomberanwa works with the figure often. Many works include the mother and child theme. What I love most about his work is the floral work. Its odd that we find a shona artist or Inuit artist work that shows us a flower. Very elegant and unique at the same, just like a real flower!
