Troy Makaza

born in 1994 in Harare (Zimbabwe)

Troy Makaza’s surreal works woven from painted silicone strings strange silicone works inhabit the space on either side of painting and sculpture. Threadlike spider webs of hair, accented with bands and braids of brightcolour silicone, are part of Makaza’s broader examination of the fluid and in- flux relationships between the sexes in contemporary Zimbabwe. The twisted strands bound together build powerful metaphors for social and intimate spaces, where traditional roles are no longer assured and liberal attitudes don’t always belong.

Troy Makaza is born in 1994, in Zimbabwe, Harare, where he ?lives and actually works.

In 2015 he received the National Certificate in Fine Art from the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios.
