Stewart Chapenga with his sculpture

About the Artist

Stewart Chapenga

“Our emotions make us human, even the bad ones have a purpose.”– Sabaar Tahir.

Stewart Chapenga adeptly expresses his intense passion for stone carving in the formation of his sculptures. There is definitely an interconnection between the sculptor and the stone. We could link this to the African notion that all things in the universe are connected to each other; land, water, people, sun, wind and rain.

Many of Stewart’s pieces could be perceived as being inspired by the waves of the ocean. A deeper look at the curves can be relaxing and hypnotic. He manages to create his pieces out of one piece of stone, and works with different stones like Springstone and Dolomite. They are an authentic showcasing of creativity and passion.
