Mandlenkosi Mavengere (1992) is from Bulawayo (known as city of kings), Zimbabwe. Mavengere works predominantly in printing and painting. After completing O-Levels (matric), he moved to South Africa where he enrolled at Artist Proof Studio, majoring in printmaking. Along with the printmaking course, his painting ability began to become evident as he participated in a number of shows. Between 2013 – 2015, his work has been exhibited at Black Like Us Exhibition and Art Investment in Parkhurst, and at the Love-world Festival of Music and Arts held at the Nasrec Arena. His work also featured in the 2015 IT-Web Calendar Brainstorm representing IBM. He has been in group shows at Julie Miller Art Investments, Henry George Gallery, Turbine Art Fair, Absa Gallery, and Artist Proof Studio. As an intern at Artist Proof Studio, he curated an exhibition hosted by Strauss and Co. In 2017, Mavengere was thereafter recommended for a one-year's internship at William Kentridge Studio for the year 2017. His mentorship by William Kentridge has developed precision in his creativity skills from etchings, into sculpturing and linocut banknotes exploring themes consistent with his Migration Concept.
