Gedion NyanhongoBorn 1967 in Nyanga

    Gedion Nyanhongo belongs to an illustrious family of sculptors whose name has international recognition. His work explores the psychological depth of the relationship between family members within traditional and contemporary African society. It shows immense respect for the way African traditions have established important family traits such as respect for elders, protection of women and children, and the importance of aunt as advisor within the family circle. Gedion worked with the late sculptor Joseph Ndandarika. Like Ndandarika, he deals adroitly with the mass, bulk and weight of stone. Huge sculptures come easily to him while smaller works are expressive, emotive, and superbly finished.
