Chrisford Chayera to exhibit in Japan

An opportunity has risen for former Visual Arts Association of Malawi (Vaam) President Chrisford Chayera, to exhibit his works in Japan.

Chayera, who has been in the world of visual arts for years, has stunned people with his talent and yet he is physically challenged.

The former Vaam president uses his mouth to create artworks.

The visual artist will leave the country on May 28 for Sapporo, Japan where he is expected to hold a two-week exhibition.

Chayera is expected back home on June 8.

“I am thankful to God for this opportunity. It’s rare to get these opportunities and to have a chance to exhibit in Japan is great. This is an opportunity for me to reach out to a different audience,” he said.

Chayera said he is expected to exhibit close to 300 works.

“As artists we need these trips because apart from exhibiting to a different audience, you also have time to network with other artists,” he said.

“Everything is set; I am just waiting for the day I will depart. I have been busy creating different artworks. This exhibition will also help me market Malawi,” he said.

Chayera said the trip was facilitated by a Japanese friend, who was impressed by his works.
