As they always say like father like son, Nicky Chovuchovu is a 41 year old, followed his father’s footsteps, Norman Chovuchovu. Norman Chovuchovu is a veteran Zimbabwean artist. From the 70s working from his studio, the Harare Art Centre, Norman trained a number of Zimbabwean artists including myself.
Young Nicky used to work on sketches with the late Charles Fernando. Nicky used to come around the centre playing around with paint and brushes and little did we know that one day he will be like his father. His inspiration came from who remains an icon to many Zimbabwean artists. After his ‘O’ Levels Nicky took painting seriously by spending time at the Harare Art Centre under the watchful eye of the veteran artists. Like many artists Nicky joined the OK Stores as a sign writer and continued painting and exhibiting his work in and outside Zimbabwe. Nicky sees himself as a voice of the voiceless people because his work tales stories from his environment.
Exhibitions have been numerous across KZN and in Harare, including solo exhibitions.
