Madalitso Ziwaoh

As an artist I have a unique touch that if anyone see the artwork has to recognize its done by Madalitso Ziwaoh even without reading my name. Still more I have different genres since we connect with people of different likes. I use oil paints, acrylic paints, pencil, charcoal and watercolor on canvas, mural, plywood, metal, paper, on stone and on any surface. I don't only use paint but also some other things thrown away after being used in the way of recycling them into something artistic. Like news papers to make a subject with a medium called mix media. For example I did a portrait of a child without using any drop of paint but only fabric cutoffs that a tailor throws away. I believe that anything existence is useful. Instead of burning newspapers and fabric cutoffs and pollute the air it is better to recycle those stuff into art. 


Madalitso Ziwaoh is a visual artist who specializes in portraits, landscapes, abstracts, wildlife, mural paintings, and signage. A self-taught artist, Madalitso began drawing at age 8 and painting years later.

I did my primary school and secondary school in Blantyre and Balaka Malawi respectively.

Elementary school in Italy, Watercolor lessons at the Universita' Della Terza Eta' and fine art at the Universita' Popolare in Italy in 1997 and 1998 to 1999.
