Takura Chadoka grew up in a town called Chitungwiza which is about 20 km from Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe. Ever since he was a little boy, Takura loved art and at the age of 12, won an award for the best drawing in a competition which was held at his primary school. This award ignited his passion for art and inspired him to study art as a subject in high school.
In 2003 Takura was in the process of studying at The National Gallery of Zimbabwe School of Art. Sadly, due to financial constraint, this talented artist was forced to abandon his studies. But, as is often the case with the truly gifted, Takura never saw this as a problem but rather as a challenge and in 2004 he joined a group of local artists for a series of workshops that helped him develop his own unique style.
Takura relocated to South Africa in 2006 and in 2008 his dream of owning his own studio was realised. Takura Chadoka is inspired by life and looks forward to hosting fellow artists at Chadoka Art & Bicycles.
The walls of Chadoka Art & Bicycles are adorned with canvasses created using various mediums and a whole lot of colour.
