Canada’s leading contemporary outdoor and online art fair

July 12 – 14, 2024.

Chaka Chikodzi

City
Kingston

Chaka Chikodzi is a Zimbabwean-Canadian stone sculptor based in Kingston, Ontario, where he has lived with his family for the past ten years. He works with volcanic rock from Zimbabwe where he began sculpting as a teenager and has a studio in Kingston and in Mvurwi, Zimbabwe, where he works with a team of assistants.

Chaka’s work is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of the natural rock formations that are unique to Zimbabwe’s landscape. It is also inspired by stories of migration and our relationship to the landscapes that bear witness to our travels.

Working with Zimbabwean stone here in Canada, where he has lived for the past 23 years, he has become increasingly interested in the stone itself – in the story it tells about geological history and in the relationship that he has forged with it over years living between two continents.
