Adolf Tega was born in Harare in 1985. He started making art at the age of ten, inspired by his uncle and brother, who are also artists. Tega studied art at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, where he had his first group show. Tega moved to South Africa in 2008, and thereafter joined Good Hope Art Studios. Tega produced his first solo show for AVA Gallery in Cape Town in 2012, and his second for World Art in 2014. Tega’s work can be found in several institutional and private collections, including Spier and the University of Cape Town. Recently, Tega was chosen for Nando’s Creative Exchange 2020, followed by an exhibition at "Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival".
