Henry Munyaradzi(1931-1998)

    Born 1931 in Guruve. Died 1998. When asked what Chapungu should title the one man exhibition of Munyaradzi in 1988, Tapfuma Gutsa replied immediately “call it The Magic of Henry-how else can one describe what Henry does to stone?” Purity of form-great simplicity-an ability to capture the essence of the subject matter and minimal but precise execution, are the qualities inherent in the work of Munyaradzi. His sculpture blends the simplicity of the primitive with stylized sophistication and he became one of the most prolific and sought after of all Zimbabwe sculptors, with works in public and private collections worldwide.
