Wycliffe Mundopa & Gresham Nyaude
BiographyWycliffe Mundopa (b. 1987 in Rusape, Zimbabwe) lives and works in Harare, where he studied art from 2005 to 2007 at the National Gallery Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios. Mundopa paints the lives of women and children in Harare’s underprivileged neighborhoods, where they live in conflict between tradition and modern life in today’s Zimbabwe. Despite the subjects reflected in his works, Mundopa works with bright colors mainly on canvas and on paper. Mundopa’s works are collected and exhibited as far wide as Hong Kong, Kenya, Australia, France, UK, Germany and The Netherlands, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea.
Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude (b. 1988 in Mbare, Zimbabwe) graduated from the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios, from where he received his National Certificate in Fine Art in 2008. Born and raised in the port city of Mbare, which is one of Harare’s and perhaps Zimbabwe’s most vibrant and notorious ghettos, Nyaude works in his paintings against a classification and certain identity that has been socially defined by the voice of the state. His images oscillate between figuration and abstraction. Nyaude’s work has been widely exhibited throughout his native Harare, as well as South Africa, Australia and the UK.
