Meet the Artist: David Manando – African Home
Born in Zimbabwe in 1972, David attended primary school until he completed his 8th grade level. Unfortunately his parents did not have the means to allow him to complete his final two years, so David left school to find work in motor car maintenance. Motor car wires were not his medium, but David had always ‘played around with wires’ (and beads) as a child and so he decided to leave Zimbabwe and try his luck in this craft in Johannesburg South Africa in 1994. Completely self-taught, David started to master the skill of wire and bead work and found that he could soon make almost anything once shown a picture.Learn More
