Dzivarasekwa 1 High’s Brendon Murira is an Advance Level student whose passion is in realist and abstract artworks.
Realist art attempts to capture real life moments in time, an image and the personality of individuals or objects who resemble factual life, whilst abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
With his artworks displays capturing many facets of African life, and telling stories older that his own age, Brendon has managed to inspire his peers.
