Goshomi was born in 1986, in Masvingo, Zambabwe, (Masvingo is in south-eastern Zimbabwe, capital of Masvingo Province).
Douglas’s parents, noticing his artistic talents at an early age, encouraged him to spend much of his time outside of primary school with established artists. Through this interaction Goshomi was exposed to the various techniques that allowed him to fashion raw stone into the forms he was trying to express. After finishing his education he focused all of his time and energy on his artwork.
After graduation he moved to Harare and studied under the tutelage of world-renowned artist Colleen Madamombe. After Colleens passing Douglas ventured out on his own, signing up to work in the artist community at Tsindi Art Center.
