Taurai Valerie Mtake aka TaVaTake is an award winning designer and artist from Zimbabwe, who is particularly interested in the potential of Afrikan heritage in contemporary Afrikan visual culture, where traditional cultural practices have often become a staged authenticity in which the history of meaning in the objects and designs is often lost, sometimes even to the producers themselves. Owing to her undying passion for Afrika, she aims to fill the gap in the market for producing edutainment material (educational and entertainment). Not only is this material innovative, but it’s also authentic and significant to Afrikans, their identity and cultural heritage.
Taurai is now currently studying her MA Visual Communication at Konstfack in Stockholm Sweden. Taurai has worked with many brands.
