"Upenyu is the ‘essence of life’ in Shona and the hybridised fragments of the artwork speak to the hidden narratives within the private domestic space." Artist - Natasha Kudita
Natasha Kudita is a Zimbabwean visual artist with an affinity for abstract painting and new media. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Fine arts in 2021 from the University of Pretoria. Kudita’s work is characterised by a modernist sentiment which takes a formalist approach in its emphasis on line, colour and shape. These elements form a visual language which she uses as a tool to communicate with the world as a creator. Kudita employs a method of abstraction to reinterpret traditional renderings of African subject matter in a manner that reflects the essence of the contemporary black individual. She ultimately draws inspiration from her Shona and Zulu heritage to elevate scenes and experiences of African subjectivity, thus allowing more people to gain a diverse understanding of our collective identity. .
