1938 - 1989
Working in the hardest, darkest Springstone, Takawrira sought always to be individual and different from those around him. At times a difficult personality, he was nevertheless uncompromising to the end - traits that are perhaps typical in a leader (of international stature) within his own field. John Takawira won awards in the National Gallery Heritage exhibitions on many occasions and has more work in the Permanent Collection of the National Gallery than any other artist. John was led to sculpture by his uncle, Joram Mariga, at the age of twenty. Frank McEwen noticed his remarkable talent immediately and he became one of the first members of the Workshop School, with his work being exhibited in the National Gallery from 1963
