Artist of the moment…..Shona artist Edward Chiwawa

Edward Chiwawa is one of the first generation of Shona sculptors and artists born in Guruve, Zimbabwe in the year 1935.

Began sculpting at the age of 35 years of age in 1970.

Chiwawa was able to learn and master his craft with the help of Henry Munyaradzi, another well respected Shona artist who happened to be his uncle.

In this clip we visit the artist for a brief interview. A happy fellow indeed!

His favorite theme and subject is the sun and the moon. Chiwawa works in a very stylistic and abstract manner. For the sun and the moon which are represented by simple circular shapes.

Based in a suburb of Harare, Zimbabwe.
