NOMADIC FAMILY BY BLESSING SANYANGA
Born in Harare Zimbabwe in 1978. Blessing comes from a family of artists. From an early age he began stone sculpting. Working at the Cannon Peterson Art Centre in Harare with over 180 stone sculptors in 1998 he began exhibiting his creations. Blessing’s inspiration comes from day to day life, dreams, imagination and the stones them selves. All his sculptures are original and one offs; I work straight into the stone without having to do a model first. Only a number of sculptures that he makes are created from sketches. Working in different types of stone such as cobalt, soapstones, black granite, serpentines, marble, sandstone and limestone as his main medium. Blessing also does paintings, ceramics and metal sculptures.
