Tendai Mupita

Born 1990, Zimbabwe. Lives and works in Harare, Zimbabwe Master printmakers in Johannesburg, such as David Krut and Artist Proof Studio, where he worked as an assistant to a resident artist Senzo Shabangu, Godfried Donkor, Marina Walsh and Endale Desalegn. He acquired extensive skills in etching, monotypes, linocutting and calligraphy as well as numerous other techniques. As a result, work with and on paper as well as printmaking have been a dominant feature of Mupita’s practice and its evolution for the past several years. In 2014 Mupita began researching fractals and in particular their relationship to both nature and African traditional cultural practices from basket weaving to architecture and found a rich thematic field, which created a wealth of synergies with his interest in working with paper-based techniques. In 2016 Mupita was awarded a residency with The Bag Factory in Johannesburg. Mupita is represented by First Floor Gallery Harare.
