Royal KatiyoBorn in 1972 in Murewa

    A determined and exciting young artist who started carving on the Gavazi Springstone claims in the hills of the Great Dyke near Mvurwi. Katiyo’s subject matter is still limited and sometimes repeated, but his works often have an endearing and humorous quality, with evidence of a developing but acute perception. He prefers harder stones especially Springstone, Dolomite, Lepidolite. A danger to his future career could be that the popularity of this birds, heads and tortoises force him to repeat them, but he is aware of this, and continuously extends himself in larger works and new subject matter. Much can be expected of him.
