Dana Whabira

dana1Whabira was born in London and grew up in Zimbabwe

. Her parentage and cultural heritage echoes from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Russia, and Argentina, making her an artist that hosts a unique set of cultural influences. She is a trained architect and studied art and design at Central Saint Martin’s College in London. Whabira’s work is a snapshot of all media, including experimental assemblages, installation, spatial intervention, sculptural painting, and photography, which incorporate performance as process. Her work often takes a story or event as a point of departure, drawing on current affairs, literature, philosophy, and theatre for inspiration, and employs language as a metaphorical device. She participated in a group show entitled Idea of Self at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. She runs Njelele Art Station which promises to make a lasting contribution to Contemporary arts culture in Zimbabwe and the region.
