ABOUT

 

Phiri was born in Mozambique. Since childhood he always loved drawing, painting and making ceramic objects. His artistic career began at Maputo School of Fine Art. After graduating with honors, Phiri went on illustrate children’s books with professor and artist Zirald Pinto.

His ideas, conveyed through figurative pictures and prints, depict eccentricity and a subversive take on life. His paintings portray movement and action - they celebrate being alive - whilst his bright colours are those of his people as they look forward to the future.

Phiri's prints often exude sexual suggestion through angular images of black and white dancing jezebels in a domestic setting. Phiri's work is exciting and different. 

Currently Phiri is developing a very distinctive style using Printmaking Techniques such as: Collage Blocks, Linocut, Lithography, Dry point, Monoprint, Woodcut, Intaglio printing, and Etching and Photograpy.
