Moffat Takadiwa

Moffat Takadiwa (born 1983, Karoi, Zimbabwe) Takadiwa creates large-scale sculptural pieces from ordinarily discarded materials, including everything from computer waste, aerosol cans and spray bottles, to toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes. He weaves together these small everyday objects to make impressive organic forms evocative of jewel-encrusted excess or a ritualistic kind of minimalism. The artist’s choice of materials communicates his concern with issues around consumerism, inequality, post-colonialism and the environment. Takadiwa graduated with a BA Honors from Harare Polytechnic College, Zimbabwe in 2008.
