Interview with Africa Agenda 


 

 


 


Petros Kaseke

 

Mr. Kaseke is the eldest in a family of 5 children, and took on the role of being a parent at a very young age, as his parents often had to travel to neighboring countries selling goods to support the children. He lived at a copper mining town near Harare where he completed his O’ & A’ Level (equivalent to year 10 and 12) and completed a diploma in Applied Art and Design at Chinhoyi University, Zimbabwe.

When the mine closed down, Mr. Kaseke moved to Harare and supported himself as a security guard at a cotton company and a general worker at a pottery company to make ends meet. He felt that he was neglecting his gift of art, so he decided to pursue a full time art career. Inspired by everyday life, his work is comprised of forms of wildlife, figures, landscapes and abstracts. He says on his website that he struggles to gain all the materials he needs for his art.

Barry Lungu

 

Mr. Lungu was born in Harare and works from his home in Chitungwiza. Coming from an artistic family, Barry was encouraged from a young age to develop his inherent abilities, from scribbling cartoons on the walls of his family home to become a well known name in the Zimbabwe art world.

As one takes a closer look at Mr. Lungu’s fascinating abstract realism paintings there is one dominate subject, and that is women.  His point of view is that families survive because of women who plan, network and unite all. He shows women going out of their way to make ends meet unlike in the past when women would sit at home, but now have to talk to each other and see how things can be solved.
