Chikonzero (Chiko) Chazunguza is a Zimbabwean visual artist and provocateur, whose multimedia artworks raise searching questions about the postcolonial condition and about the unstable role and nature of art in its postcolonial context. Amongst his most compelling works are those that reinstate for the viewer a sense of ritual order and of lifes deeper mysteries, alongside proffering incisive, yet subtle social analysis. In this style he could easily be labeled as ethno modernist.
Chiko was born and raised in the high-density suburb of Highfields, in Harare, Zimbabwe. In 1987, he won a scholarship to study at the Institute of Pictorial Arts in Sofia Bulgaria, where he earned his MFA and was trained in the classical modes of printmaking, drawing and painting. He spent 7 years in Bulgaria witnessing how the country was going through major changes. In 1994 he returned to Zimbabwe in search of uniting his modern European training with indigenous Zimbabwean art.
