Jonathan Madzinga was born on the 15th of January 1985 in Bulawayo, in the Math South region of Zimbabwe.
He began painting at the age of six, encouraged by his father who was a painter and recognized his talent. Soon he was introduced to the National Art Gallery in Bulawayo, where Jonathon developed his appreciation for fine art.
He received tertiary art training at the Mzilikazi Art and Craft Centre, and was a resident artist at the National Gallery of Bulawayo.
Since 2002 Jonathan has exhibited in Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa, The Netherlands, UK, Dubai, Canada, USA, and Australia.
His paintings are about life and living, enjoying making people happy and sharing his culture.
