Takunda Regis Billiat

Born 1990, Harare, Zimbabwe Lives and works in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Having graduated in 2014 from National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Art Studio, specialising in painting, Billiat has begunworking in three dimensions as a result of his artistic research into the role of religious and spiritual traditions in contemporary Zimbabwe. While retaining the formal elements of painting such as compositions and colour Billiat breaks out of the frame to grapple viscerally and tangibly with Christianity and the Bible as a social construct, ringing the alarm bell on the rise of charismatic churches in Zimbabwe, with their prophets exploiting the ignorance of the people of their own religion’s true content.
