About this product
Stary combines a realist and an abstract style to explore liminal states.

Stary Mwaba was born in Zambia in 1976, His paintings are characterized by figures rendered meticulously with intensely expressive faces surrounded with more expressionist figures and backgrounds, combining realism with a freer, more abstract style. Stary’s artworks have been shown in solo and group exhibitions such as ”Solace of a Migrant” in Johannesburg in 2009, “ Freedom in Transition” Lusaka National Museum, “Crossing Over” Caribbean Contemporary Arts 7, Port of Spain, and ”Fabula” art exhibition in Rome in 2010. He has received the National Arts Council Ngoma Award, and participated in international workshops. His pieces are represented in several collections both in Zambia and abroad, such as Barclays Bank, Lusaka, Robert Wilson, New York, and Zanele Mbeke, South Africa.

More Information
A simple yet powerful painting, which can move even the most powerful and unwavering of critics. Art can incorporate a wide variety of things. From sculptures, to drawings, to meals and paintings, but not a single one of them can even match and live up to the expectations of Crossing Over. This is a painting done in such a way that it will remind you about the hardship and ordeal that one might go through at one point or another in his life, but in a beautiful way. There are a lot of elements that make it come together and even come alive while viewing it, but the most important thing about it is the fact that if you sit back and relax, take it all in and really examine it, you will find yourself immersed in the world of the painter, living the exact moment when the paint brush touched the canvas and seeing what the painter was seeing at the time. Most people find it hard to consider art as a viable way of decorating their homes, however what they are actually unable to do is see how much art can improve the quality of their home. It gives a reason for conversations to start, it changes the mood and atmosphere in a room, it gives you something to look at and admire, not to mention the fact that it makes you think, imagine and expand your horizon, even though it is only for a moment.
