Troy Makaza

Born 1994, Zimbabwe Lives and works in Harare, Zimbabwe Having graduated from National Gallery Visual Art Studio in 2014, Makaza has been focusing on developing his own unique medium to best express his ideas. He emerges from painting but resolving in sculpture his medium like his subject matter - the fluid and influx relationship between the sexes in contemporary Zimbabwe. The twisted and colorful strands bound together build powerful metaphors for social and intimate spaces, where traditional roles are no longer assured but “liberal” attires don’t always fit.
