INW Communications Committee, Trish B, suggested today’s artist – Charles Nkomo. Nkomo was born and raised in Zimbabwe and studied Fine Art at the Mzilikazi Art and Craft Centre in Bulawayo. A far cry from the more stereotypical carved mask, Nkomo employs bold colors and almost abstract painting techniques to create works that show the people and landscapes of southern Africa.
More of Nkomo’s work can be found after the jump.
