Restone Maambo was born in Zambia, in 1980. His work is about considering life experience and the ways of then artistically interpreting life that surrounds him. His paintings have reminiscent aspects, looking back at childhood in his subject matter and uses of unusual materials in his works. Maambo was first interested in illustrations found in newspapers and comics at the age of 5. His passion for creativity and art lead him to move to Cape Town to study further and he was awarded numerous prizes as he studied at Ruth Prowse. He graduated in 2008 and has since pursued his career, focusing on painting concerned with the human form and its presence in different environments.
