Lovemore Bonjisi

Bonjisi was born in Ruwa, Zimbabwe and into a family with reputation for sculpture. He originally learned his skills from the his Lameck who sadly passed away in 2003. Lovemore’s entry into the sculptor scene was not just influenced by his family but due to the fact that he was unable to attend high school because he couldn’t produce a birth certificate. Unhindered by this the young Bonjisi joined his brother at the age of twelve and began to learn his craft. By the time he received his national birth certificate at age 15 he had already began to establish himself on the sculptor scene.

Lovemore’s work has its own signature. His sculptures exemplify the expressions of the shona people. His work had been exhibited abroad as far as the US, Germany and the Netherlands.
