Eddie Masaya trained under his relative, the acclaimed first generation artist Moses Masaya. After 2 years, he joined Brighton Sango in Guruve and together the two artists spearheaded, with Tapfuma Gutsa and Norbet Shamyuyarira, the second generation of sculptors. In his early years, he liked to highly polish all his pieces but now prefers textures and unworked surfaces. He has become a master in this field; content sometimes to merely suggest an image before declaring the sculpture complete.
Masaya is a committed artist of exceptional technical skill whose work comments on both traditional values and contemporary issues.« Back to Artists
