Les Artistes

 "Pair(s)" september - december 2015

Born in Zimbabwe in 1981, he lives and works in Johannesburg.

Kudzanai Chiurai graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of Pretoria. Persona non grata in his country of birth, Zimbabwe, he has become one of southern Africa's strong voices. All at once photographer, painter and video artist, his art is inspired by the political, social and economic struggles in his home country, Zimbabwe. This artist/activist also denounces the xenophobia and violence of his country of residence, South Africa. Chiurai has exhibited his works all around the world. He participated in the Documenta 13 (2012) and is one of the many artists on show in the Johannesburg Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2015).
