Local Artist Zimbo Da Vinci Trolls Celebrities
A local artist who goes by the alias Zimbo Da Vinci is having the time of his life. The artist who rose to fame on Facebook through his art has been sharing his artwork on the social media platform. We aren’t too sure whether the artist is genuinely trying his best at portraying real-life portraits or if the Zimbabwean version of Picasso is taking a piss at local celebrities.
Check out the questionable ‘artwork’ below…
Spectators have drawn comparisons between Zimbo Da Vinci and South African Artist Rasta, who is Zimbabwean born too.
‘After Tears’ painter, Rasta has gained notoriety for his work, yet not in the most ideal way.
His craft has become so famous that The Queen entertainer Zenande Mfenyana tweeted that she doesn’t need Rasta to portray her at her burial service. She was responding to his representation of the late radio telecaster Bob Mabena.
There have been a few hints of something to look forward to after he figured out how to deliver a fair picture of the late battle symbol Andrew Mlangeni.
Rasta however doesn’t pay heed to the haters. He further went on to defend his craft stating,
“People do not understand the pressure that comes with painting in public, it’s not easy. Also, many people take pictures of my artwork when they are not complete and make comments on them. Some families are shocked when I send them the final artwork and see how good it looks, considering all the comments they see on social media about the artwork.”
Do you reckon Zimbo Da Vinci can give Rasta a run for his money?
