Benjamin KatiyoBorn in 1970 in Murewa

    Benjamin Katiyo’s early ambition was to become a preacher, but he was inspired to take up sculpture by his younger brother Royal, a much acknowledged Zimbabwean sculptor. Katiyo works in Springstone and gives this material life by the use of many different textures and polishing techniques. Mainly acknowledged for his ability to express human emotion in smaller works- desperation, sadness, joy, togetherness, grief-he is now beginning to venture into much larger pieces, often depicting aspects of his own culture. Katiyo is a very determined, hardworking, enthusiastic and talented artist whose works will be included in many future exhibitions.
