Zambian, Born 1990
Victor is a deaf artist who discovered he had a talent for art only after he came to Mawaheb.
He was training to be a chef initially; once he found the world of canvas and paints, there was no looking back for Victor . He has been growing as an artist and has been very fortunate in his mentors and teachers. Trevor Waugh, the well known artist from UK has trained Victor in his studio in the UK. Together Victor and Trevor exhibited at DIFC in 2011. Victor has also learnt from Dutch artist Hans Hoog Stoevenbelt ; learning from such established and well known artists has given him immense self confidence and a belief in his own talent.
Victor had his first solo exhibition in the summer of 2013 which was very well received.
Victor believes that a voice can be heard not merely through sound, but also via art created by his hands. Our hope for Victor is that one day soon the whole world will " hear" him.
