Born in 1986 in Guruve (Northern Zimbabwe)in a family of seven boysBrian was inspired by his brothers growing homestead which is situated at the foot of a hill rich in fruit serpentine, the Chiparambembwe Hill. It was easy for him to experiment and develop his artistic career with a source of stone to work with.
Using tools of his brothers and taking advantage of an abudance of raw stones in the hill he set his heart into sculpting.
By 1997as ayoung boy, hesaw some of hisworks being collected by art dealers who used to tour the Guruve area, going deeper into the villages to find other artists works. He then joined Sanganai Art Group as a measure of broadeninghis market scope and thenmoved to Harare where he joined friends from his rural home and eventually partnered with his brother Stewart, creatingtheir own dipsplays.Brian’s sculpture practice continues to bloom and evolve -specialising in abstract flowers and figurative abstracts. To date his works have been collected by numerous collectors from around the world.
I would want to thank my brothers and friends in givingme a hand and providing me with ideas in developing my own style. Even thoughI am still youngI have gained enough ground in establishing my artistic career. My brothers are Casten, Donald, Tavengwa and Stewart Chapenga.
