Sky Salanje is first and foremost interested in the people around him. His paintings and etchings focus on expressing personalities and quirks of human nature. In a world of stylisation and stereotypes, Salanje’s works depict the vast variety of character and social expression in Zimbabwe’s high density neighbourhoods, all reaching out for recognition, which Salanje richly delivers.
Born in 1992 in Mutare, Zimbabwe, Salanje has exhibited widely in Zimbabwe’s leading exhibition platforms including Gallery Delta, First Floor Gallery Harare as well as the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. He holds a certificate in Fine Arts from National Gallery of Zimbabwe Visual Art Studio.
