Franklyn Dzingai
(Kwekwe, Zimbabwe, 1988)

 

 

Franklyn Dzingai è nato a Kwekwe, Zimbabwe, nel 1988, e oggi lavora ad Harare.

Nel 2021 è stato vincitore del premio ArtHARARE Africa. Nel 2009 ha iniziato il suo percorso di formazione presso il National Gallery of Zimbabwe Art Studio, specializzandosi nel 2011 nelle tecniche di stampa. Spesso include nel suo lavoro collage e disegni, e le sue stampe sono caratterizzate da colori vivaci. Ricava le sue immagini da libri, riviste, quotidiani e fotografie di famiglia.

Dzingai è uno dei pochi artisti in Zimbabwe ad aver approfondito il tema della stampa; ha sperimentato in particolare l'utilizzo di matrici in cartone nei processi di stampa. Questo tipo di ricerca lo ha portato a vincere diversi premi, soprattutto ad Harare.
