Richard Mteki was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1947. Following in his brother Boira's footsteps, and influenced by his example and success, Richard joined the Workshop School of the Nation Gallery.
Richard Mtekis most common subject is the human form and his preferred medium is the brown serpentine. His work varies from that which emphasizes a clean, simple form and sharp line to at times a softer more rounded approach. Despite what often appears to be a very simple and economical style, Mtekis works are invariably expressive of mood and emotion. It is this ability to communicate feelings with which the viewer frequently can empathize which is probably the main reason for the widespread appeal of his work.
