Liberty Shuro was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Shuro is an artist who lives in Gweru in the
Midlands province. He works predominantly in drawing, though he works at ease with other
mediums in printmaking and painting. Shuro was introduced to art when he was 8 years old, being
amazed by how pencils can create texture, depth and illusion of colour he fell in love with drawing.
His skills developed ceaselessly when he was 14 and with inspiration coming from other great Artists
such as Dirk Dzimirsky, Kelvin Okafor and other locally based artists such as John Mahove,
Marvellous Mangena , he adopted the realism technique.
During his early primary and secondary education he never attended any art classes or any formal
art education till in 2016 when he completed a one year course in Art and Design at Mutare
Polytechnic in Zimbabwe.
Shuro wants to portray life in his work and this is seen in his portraits, botanical and wildlife drawings.

had exhibitions twice at Verandah Gallery and thrice at Wild geese Art festival in Harare. He also exhibited at the Worldwide Botanical Art Exhibition held at Everard Read Gallery in Johannesburg SouthAfrica on the 17 of May 2018.
