Born in Mhondoro in 1977, Wellington Chingondi started sculpting in 1996 at the famous Tengenenge arts community founded by Tom Blomefield in Guruve.

Inspired by the master sculptor Bernard Matemera whom he has very fond memories of,Wellington was taught sculpting by his brother in law Takawira Chikwanyanga

Wellington believes sculpting is about subtraction because you do not add when sculpting, you subtract the things you do not like.
