Robert Kwechete

Robert Kwechete is a Zimbabwean Postwar & Contemporary artist who was born in 1959. The most famous animal sculptor in the modern Shona movement,  Kwechete’s giraffes, kudus, elephants and hippos have an international following. Growing up in the Inyanga mountains, Kwechete felt a mystical kinship with the African wildlife he saw in its natural habitat, which is gorgeously expressed in his sculpture. Marvels of negative space, his pieces create several animals carved out of one stone, swirling around each other.¹
