Peter Kwangware was born in 1974. From 1995 to 1997 he studied art at the well-known B.A.T. Visual Art Studios of the National Gallery in Harare (Zimbabwe). Peter Kwangware’s works are vivid, figurative paintings mostly in oil. His paintings are inspired by social aspects of African life and explore themes of everyday living in both the city and rural areas. Often he paints popular spots such as fields and markets and strives to tell the tales of present times in Zimbabwe in a manner which is nevertheless permanent.
Peter has won several awards at the Annual Heritage exhibitions, including the Award of Merit (1997), Award of Distinction (1997), Award of Distinction – Young Artists of Promise (1997) and the 1998 Award of Merit.
