Born in 1983 in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe. Lives and works in Podgorica, Montenegro. Virginia Chihota's drawings and monoprints express a world in which memory and metaphor collide. Over the past years, she has submitted her life, recently her experience of marriage and motherhood, to considerable observation and transformed her thoughts into a body of works on paper of striking formal complexity. Virginia Chihota was born in 1983 in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe and currently lives and works in Podgorica, Montenegro. She graduated in Fine Arts from the National Art Gallery Studios in Harare, Zimbabwe in 2006.
