Richie Marley Madyira

Richie currently lives and works in Cape Town. Richie was born in Zimbabwe in 1989 and graduated from the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visuals Arts Studio in 2007.

He often remembers how conflicts would arise in his family due to religious disputes against traditional rituals. This has affected his perception of faith and religion and is often emphasized in his artworks.

Besides his critique on religious dogma’s, he also sympathises with fellow immigrants who find new homes all over the African continent where they are often discouraged. Many of the portraits he painted represent these Zimbabwean individuals.
