We are very proud to announce the exhibition 'Many Moods' by self-taught artist Isheanesu Dondo at the Gemma.
Through exposure to artists like Lawrence Bango at the National Gallery of Zimbabwein Bulawayo, and the tutelage of artists like Wisdom Vangani and Tapfuma Gutsa, Dondo began to develop an understanding of the cosmos through art and a burgeoning interest in ancient civilisations.
His work is marked by small scale pencil drawings on unfolded cigarette boxes, that represent his moods inspired by Shona culture.
Isheanesu Dondo was born and lives and works in Zvishavane, Zimbabwe. Exhibitions include Chasing the Sun at Cape Town Central Library (South Africa: 2013);The Many Moods at The Corridor, Harare (Zimbabwe: 2017); and Afropolicity at Njelele Art Station in Harare (Zimbabwe: 2013)
