In Conversation with Kudzanai-Violet Hwami

Posted in Art Market  |  January 15, 2022
Kudzanai-Violet Hwami is a young African painter on the rise, with her figurative works of black people which explore themes of identity, sexuality, and displacement. She is among a new wave of African artists whose works are currently trending on an art market looking for more inclusive stories. Her work engages in the deconstruction of stereotypes on the black body, using more spiritual or social symbols than political message. Her juxtaposed images create non-linear paintings that depict a way of existing in multiple temporalities.
