Richard Kandemire was born September 3, 1975 in Mudzi District of Marozva Village, Zimbabwe. Born the seventh of eight children he finished his primary levels and had a great interest in art
at an early age. Only carving since November of 1989, Richard is considered a natural talent.
His expressions are abstract and contemporary in his portrayal in his portrayal of ancestor spirits.
His faces express sharp lines and with purposeful form. Richard has learned many of his artistic
skills from fellow sculptors and their willingness to share with each other has been a binding force
between many artists in Zimbabwe.

Richard is married and has a young child.

Exhibitions of Richard's work has been at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe,
New York City, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco, CA; San Diego, CA;
Boston, Massachusetts, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey
and Newport, Rhode Island
