Artist of the moment……..Brighton Sango

Brighton Sango was a second generation Shona artist born in Guruve, Zimbabwe in the year 1958. The artist was quite ground breaking in his style becoming one of the more abstract inspired shona artists.

The artist was part of the Tengenenge Sculpture Park. He stayed here less than one year as he didn’t enjoy being around the other artists. He thought his artwork was being too influenced by the other artists.

The artist has a brother Bywell Sango, who is also a professional artist.

Brighton Sango took his own life and committed suicide in 1995.

price range information: Sorry none available.

What a great style Anderson Mukomberanwa had, I can’t help but think of the artist father son relationship of other artists such as Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, or even N.C. and Andy Wyeth. Who knows how great Anderson Mukomberanwa could have become if he had even reached the age of fifty. Let us remember life is often times to short to tackle everything we would like to accomplish!
