Leonard Sezhendo

Lives in Harare

Leonard Sezhendo is one of Zimbabwe’s most dedicated sculptors, living and working in the rural area outside the city of Harare. The sculptures Leonard produces speak of fundamental human experiences related to the family unit. Warmth, love and playfulness are communicated in a profoundly simple and direct way that is both rare and extremely refreshing. He works together with his stone, it is strongly believed in Shona culture that nothing which exists naturally is inanimate – it has a spirit and life of its own, therefore one is always aware of the stone’s contribution to the finished sculpture. Sezhendo works mainly with the indigenous, hard, dark Springstone, achieving colour variations in shades of grey depending on his tools.
