Tizirai, known by his colleagues as “Gwama”, started sculpting in 1992 and was unwavering in his pursuit for excellence. During his lifetime, Tizirai’s work had an unmistakable trademark of contrasted handshakes. The handshake sculptures were the expression of his need to see inter-racial unity, he shared Martin Luther’s dream of seeing a world where people are not judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.
