Joe MutasaBorn 1964 in Rusape

    Coming from a family of sculptors, Mutasa initially carved representational heads and figures for the tourist trade, but then came to Chapungu Sculpture Park where he met many committed sculptors, who urged him to create art rather than mass-produced repeated themes. Within a few years, his work drew attention and in 1997 three large works were included in the Kirstenbosch show in Cape Town to much acclaim. He prefers harder stones- Springstone, Granite, Lepidolite and Dolomite and is inspired by family, daily life and the environment.
