EDMORE SANGO

I was born in 1977 in Guruve and received my primary education at Nyanhunzi School, my secondary education at Mamini High School. I started sculpting at a very tender age; my inspiration was due to the fact that I came from a renowned carving family. During my school holidays I used to help my sister Queen and brother Brighton Sango to finish or polish their sculpture. This helped me to obtain and gain very good experience while I was still very young. 

In 1995 after completing my secondary education I decided to become a fulltime sculptor. In 1998 Tom Blomefield invited me to join Tengenenge Sculpture Community. I worked with them for two years. In 2001, I received an invitation to Netherlands from two galleries called World Art Foundation and Kunst In Depolder to do a workshop and exhibition. It was a successful exhibition and workshop. 

In 2002 I was invited to Germany to Enlaoe Gallery and we had a successful exhibition and workshop. Last year ( 2013) I was in Germany at INTO AFRICA GALLERY for workshops and exhibitions.

I am now one of the successful third-generation Sculptors. I have received three Merit awards from World Art Foundation, Kunst in Depolder and Enlaoe. I am still striving to further improving my sculpting techniques and sculptures. I am married and I have three children, two girls and one boy.
