Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude

Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude (b. 1988) graduated from the National gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios, from where he received his National Certificate in Fine Art in 2008. Born and raised in Mbare, Nyaude works against the sweeping identity that has been defined by the voice of the state. His images oscillate between figuration, abstraction and hallucination, drawing from the restless energy of his home town. His work has been widely exhibited throughout his native Harare, as well as South Africa, Australia and the UK. Recent exhibitions include Another Antipodes/urban axis, PS Art Space, Fremantle, Australia; Hello Harare! - Collaging the City, First Floor Gallery Harare and Face the Magic: Gule Wamkulu and its Heirs (curated by Valerie Kabov), Loving Monro Gallery, Santa Monica, USA (all 2017.
