About Zin Maisiri
“I believe painting with my soul …. not only with my eyes .
The soul sees more and feels moods better. I hope to perfect that emotion.
I am a voracious reader. Books of every nationality give me Shakespeare, etc.
"Chinua achebe and a pinch of poetry (which I also write).”
Zin Maisiri was born in 1970 in Zambia but grew up in Zimbabwe. He Studied Art and Design at Chinhoyi University…as well as Diploma in Teaching.
He later on embarked on a teaching career for about 5 years and taught Art in schools.
After which he left teaching and became a Clothing Designer for about six years before returning to Art permanently.
Zin Maisiri went to Namibia for 3 years where he had success in the Tourist market and built up a strong body of work which enabled him to put bread on the table so to speak. In this period his style changed both on a commercial and personal level. Initially he believed himself to be a social observer of every day occurrences as well as the political bubbling unders of the African panorama. Zin Maisiri style has changed and will change as he challenges the artist within and as he evolves in how he sees and relates to the world.
