WYCLIFFE MUNDOPA

1987, Works and lives in Harare, Zimbabwe 

 

 

We are both proud and honored to present the work of Wycliffe Mundopa at the gallery. In his colorful, politically engaged artworks, Mundopa strives to further emancipation of woman and children alike. Wycliffe is part of the 'free-born' generation, who have never experianced the colonial Rhodesia. He has the ambition to be part of the world as equals amongst equals. As a painter, Wycliffe Mundopa may be seen as a griot with a mission to document the life of his comtemporaries for future generations. Whilst the voice of Harare is not yet represented on a global scale, the metropole serves as a melting pot where the different goals of Zimbabwe are given shape.
