Most of his art is in the abstract style, and are housed with collectors in France, Germany, Australia, UK, Canada, USA and Singapore. Chandigwa respects to esteemed artists Kennedy Musekiwa and Nicholas Mukomberanwa, and credits them for inspiration. Chandigwa has won many awards, including First Mobile Heritage Exhibition Zimbabwe, Old State House Hartford, Artsenal Gallery, Paris, and Alter Postweg Geshev.
What is Shona? The best of Zimbabwe stone sculpture combines the splendor and solidity of the stone medium with imagery drawn from reality and abstracted into symbolic form. Figures and features that are reminiscent of, yet not quite like, animal, and human forms suggest the creatures and mythological beings that inhabit the realms of the religions and folklore of the Zimbabwean people.
Heritage York's Shona Gallery was the first gallery that brought Shona art to the United States.
