Askim Wisikesi was born in Mutorashanga area at Jester mine. He is third born in a family of five.
He did his primary education at Jester primary school in Mutorashanga and secondary education at Chrome mine secondary school in Mutorashanga.
He started sculpting at a tender age of 12 years when he was in Grade Five working as an assistant to his brother Saidi Wisikesi.
After my O’Levels he decided to make sculpting his career. He was inspired by his brother Saidi, Tutani Mugabazi and Letwin Mugabazi.
During my spare time I like to play Marimba, Mbira and listening to traditional music.
