Tafunga was born a twin, with his brother Garikai in 1982 in Ruwa, Zimbabwe.
He attended primary school in Ruwa and high school in Tafara where he completed his education.
Straight from school his heart was set on stone sculpture. His greatest influence was his older brother Lameck, who has since passed away. He was a master sculptor and one of the most creative artists of the second generation.
Tafunga's sculptures have maintained the essence of the root of their stone sculpture tradition. From Nicholas Mukomberanwa to Lameck and down to Tafunga a tradition of style and quality has been preserved. His sculpting career began in 2000 and under the guidance of Lameck, his work has caught the eye of art dealers worldwide.
His sculptures possess movement which makes it dynamic and appealing to view. He’s a master of sculpting Busts. His Busts stand high above the rest with long necks and emotional faces which tell different stories from ‘Lovers’ to ‘Twins’, to ‘Judges’. Tafunga loves working on cobalt, Springstone and Opal stones.
