Admire Kamudzengerere

adi1Admire was born 27th December 1981 in Harare, Zimbabwe. In the year 2000 he completed his ‘A’ Level Education at Hatfield High School.

From 2001- 2003 he attended Helen Lieros Fine Art lessons at Gallery Delta.Known for his lively, raw and often dark allegorical depictions of life in Zimbabwe, Kamudzengerere was one of 15 successful artists selected from over 2000 applicants worldwide, and the second Zimbabwean artist ever, to be awarded a residency at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, 2012 – 2014.  He trained at Gallery Delta and at the National Gallery School in Harare. His male portraits, intense but at the same time indefinable, speak not only to personal struggle, self-definition and father-son relationships but more broadly to the theme of contemporary masculinity. Kamudzengerere is currently based in Harare, where he teaches and is busy creating a new farm-based artist collective.
