Nesbert Mukomberanwa

Nesbert Mukomberanwa was born in the Buhera district in the Manicaland Province of Zimbabwe. He first began stone carving at the age of 14 but his serious involvement with sculpting began in 1987 under the guidance of his uncle, Nicholas Mukomberanwa, one of Zimbabwe’s foremost artists. Nesbert stayed with his uncle for two years at Ruwa farm benefiting from the opportunity to learn from and work alongside an acknowledged master.

Since 1989 he has been working independently and in recent years has shown increasing evidence of his own formidable creative talent. He can now justifiably be counted amongst the significant talents of Zimbabwe’s “second generation” of sculptors. His sculptures are figurative, incorporating smooth rounded forms, and miniaturized heads. As with all genuinely talented sculptors, he is clearly comfortable with his chosen medium, recognizing and harnessing its qualities in the creation of his sculptural forms. This ability is particularly evident in works which incorporate the stone’s natural rough texture with the smooth polished surfaces that are his own creation.

The harmony between the artist and his medium is also much in evidence in more recent abstract forms and provide a further indication of this artist’s developing talent. A talent which is increasingly gaining recognition through participation in the National Gallery of Zimbabwe’s annual Heritage Exhibitions as well as exhibitions in Germany, Belgium and the United States and South Africa. Nesbert’s works are held in private collections worldwide.
