Admire Kamudzengerere was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1981, where he lives and works. Kamudzengerere was awarded a diploma in Fine Arts in 2003 by the National Gallery School of Visual Arts and Design in Harare. He works in performance, video, installation and painting, as well as various printmaking techniques including monotype, silkscreen and lithography, and uses his expressive, experimental practice to capture themes of psychological and political struggle, both the personal histories of family and the parallel narratives of society and nation. He has won awards and fellowships from the Thami Mnyele Foundation, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Hivos Foundation, and the Culture Fund Zimbabwe; and in 2018, his solo project for miart won the On Demand Prize for the best presentation within the On Demand section of the fair. His work is included in international collections such as the National Gallery of Zimbabwe; the Sindika Dokolo Foundation, Angola; Fondation Blachère, France; the Block Museum of Art, USA; and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
