Masimba Dimbwi

African Art Shona Sculpture - Masimba DimbwiMasimba was born in the Wedza communal area of Zimbabwe in 1975.

While growing up, he became increasingly attracted to the Shona Sculpture that was being produced by the local artists, and wondered if he could one day learn to be a successful sculptor.

His brother, who is a professional artist, encouraged him further, but it was well known artist, Caudious Mapete, who took young Masimba under his wing.

During the three years he spent with Mapete, he worked in hard stones like Verdite, Leopard rock, Cobalt and Springstone.
