Wiseman Mpofu

Wiseman was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1986. He developed his art skills at the Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre from 2005-2007.

Wiseman was privately tutored by Newman Ndlovu, from whom he learned his trademark watercolours.

He worked at Nnino Ceramics in Thorngroove, Bulawayo in 2009, where he had the opportunity to paint portraits of Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

His watercolour paintings have attracted a worldwide audience in Israel, America, Great Britain, Switzerland, and South Africa. Wiseman moved to South Africa for better economic opportunities.

He joined the Ardmore family in 2019. Wiseman’s work was showcased at the Sabie Exhibition in The Cellars, Cape Town 2019. He also painted the exquisite ‘Barrow of Booze’ Sculpture fashioned by Bennet Zondo, part of Ardmore’s 2020 online exhibition ‘And the World Came Together, as the People Stayed Apart’.
