“I believe art is a feeling. I did not start carving I was born carving.At the age of 10 I used to come back from school and carve. I got the inspiration to discover my talent from one of the greatest artists Thomas Tandi, who is my father.
Gabriel Tandi who is my grandfather and one of the pioneers of Shona Fine Art, passed the blood of art to his offspring. Almost 70% of the Tandi family are artists. So art is my life, I breathe art, it’s my sixth sense.
I’m coming from Murehwa rural area where I was born in a family of 9 and I’m the 5th born and I’m now a father of four. I did my primary level in Murehwa and went to Chitungwiza for my secondary level at Seke 1 High School where I also did my electronic data processing EDP certificate.
I enjoy carving Fine Art and abstracts on hard stones though it’s challenging. My work has and is being exhibited all over the world. I won a couple of awards including the NAMA merit award 2917,AGIO exhibition, Chitungwiza Art Centre 10th Anniversary exhibition and have been a nominee in a number of exhibitions.“
