About the artist
Charles’ Levison’s work has been exceptionally well received in Malawi and he is regularly featured in the national press and mainstream media. His first public exhibition was in 2016 at the Jacaranda Cultural Center, which was met with national acclaim. Born in 1991, Charles originally trained as a bricklayer, but he said the “spirit of art” moved him to re-train as an artist, and he attended Nthilo School of Art. Now he teaches in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe. He is Vice General Secretary for the Film Association of Malawi and General Secretary for the Visual Arts Association of Malawi.
