LINCON MUTETA

A native of the Highfield area of Harare, Muteta is the youngest of four in a family which originates from Mutoko; his totem is "Soko Murehwa", or the monkey. He began sculpting in 1989 while in secondary school in Harare, later becoming an assistant to Danny Kanyemba. He was encouraged to start work on his own as a full-time sculptor by Moses Masaya. He has a great love for Shona culture and this coupled with his imaginative and innovative ability has ensured that his work is of a very high quality and standard and has earned him admiration from collectors around the world. Lincon bases his work on day-to-day events that interest him and the feelings and emotions of the people around him. His faces and gestures reflect the joys and sadness experienced by the sprawling population of Chitungwiza suburb where he also lives. Lincon has been instrumental in encouraging and teaching younger artists, several of whom are now pursuing solo careers. Lincon's skill has also been appreciated in Zimbabwe, in particular by Roy Guthrie, the Director of Chapungu Sculpture Park where Lincon was a resident artist during 1996-97. During 2004-08, Lincon travelled and exhibited in group exhibitions in South Africa and in countries like Bahrain, Dubai, England[1] and Canada with Zimsculpt. His works have also been exhibited in countries like Spain, Germany, Holland, United States of America,
