Dudzai was born in 1974 in Mutoko. He is the last born in a family of four.
Dudzai grew up in Chitungwiza, a high-density suberb just outside Harare, where he completed his primary education. Dudzai showed early signs of artistic creativity whilst at school.
He started his sculpting career in 1990 when he was taken on by the sculptor John Type as his assistant. He worked with John for two years sculpting contemporary visual art under his supervision and then set up on his own as a full time sculptor.
He is inspired to sculpt by his ancestors who were also artists. Through his research and interests in African culture he found that his cultural history was becoming defunct in sculpting and he wanted to revive this art form by teaching himself and now others.
The only way he found to let the people of his origin know the importance of their culture was to send the message through sculptures. His art is borne from day to day activities, cultural history and visiting places of interest.
His sculptures can be found in galleries in Germany, Belgium, Holland, the U.K. and the U.S.
