Umlungu is a Zimbabwe born mixed medium abstract artist and photographer. His work is hugely influenced by his upbringing in Zimbabwe and travel in Southern Africa and he draws inspiration from life experience, people and nature. His work is unique, vibrant and energizing. Colour and texture are a constant feature in his work.
From his days as a school photographer, to owning a trio of art galleries in South Africa mentoring artists into the world of selling, one thing was certain, Umlungu was always destined to be an artist. In 2008 he sold his first artwork from his own gallery in Cape Town and in 2010, personal events saw him return to his maternal family’s roots in Scotland, where he now resides.
“The magnetic attraction and beauty of Africa cannot truly be put into words. Deep down, I will always be passionately African.” – Umlungu
