Stalin Tafura’s stone sculpture has received international acclaim and he has been recognized as one of the most promising stone sculptors of his generation.

Tafura harnesses his unique artistic sensibility to speak to and listen to stone, resulting in distinctly powerful stone sculptures that transcend time and geographical space. Tafura’s stone sculpture affirms the values and wisdom of Shona culture while reflecting themes that resonate with people throughout the world. Tafura is the first Zimbabwean to cast his one-of-a-kind stone sculpture in bronze on a large scale.

Tafura is based in Longmont, Colorado and enjoys returning to Zimbabwe each year, where he sculpts alongside his mother, world renown stone sculptor, Agnes Nyanhongo. Tafura’s bronze and stone sculpture can be seen at InArt Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico; SmithKlein Gallery in Boulder, Colorado; and Ramey Fine Art in Palm Desert, California.

Over the next year, Tafura is looking forward to working on a life-size stone sculpture at Chapungu Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado.
