Wycliffe Mundopa’s vibrant paintings canonize the often overlooked lives of women and children in the artist’s home of Harare, Zimbabwe. On bright, theatrical canvases that recall the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Fauvists such as Henri Matisse, Mundopa combines oil paint and fabric collage. His central figures are mothers, caregivers, children, and sex workers who live and work in neighborhoods across the city. Mundopa studied at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Arts Studios and has exhibited in London, New York, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Paris, Berlin, and beyond. His work belongs to multiple collections including the Ilana Goor Museum, the Right at the Equator project, the Museum of Modern Art of Equatorial Guinea, and the Lluís Coromina Foundation.
