In recent years the economy in Zimbabwe, as in many other places, has declined drastically due to political upheaval and other factors. Artists there, as elsewhere, have found it difficult to subsist entirely off their art. Collen has been proactive in finding ways to supplement the sales of his sculptures, and has purchased two pigs with the help of the Eldorado Springs Art Center and the Millenium Group. He hopes to purchase more in the coming months so that he can support his growing family and focus on his art. There are many ways in which you can support Collen; purchasing his sculptures, donating towards his livestock fund or spreading the word about his work. We’re open to ideas and suggestions, so please contact us with any thoughts you may have in that regard.
For donation or purchasing information please contact us at Just Rite Media.
