I was recently contacted by a gallery in Arizona, here in the US, and they introduced me to the work of one of their artists, Dominic Benhura.
His work seems so fluid and dynamic, which is counter-intuituve as Dominic works in a hard stone called Springstone. Springstone is native of Zimbabwe, as is Dominic. He has five children, and I think you can see his tenderness toward them in his sculptures of children.
If you want to see more you can go here, and if you end up buying any of his work, you will be in the good company of Nelson Mandela, Halle Berry, and the United Nations.
