Born in Harare and raised in Rusape, Option began sketching at an early age. He has developed a versatility that allows him to elegantly express himself when printmaking, painting, or using mixed media. The exploration of the impact of technology on urban youth in townships as well as the illusions, attractions and trappings of contemporary township life thematically unite option’s work.
Option was awarded the Artist in Residence Programme at the National Gallery School of Visual Arts and Design in 2014. His work is held in international collections, including Manchester United Football Club in the UK, the residences of the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Ambassador of the European Union Delegation in Zimbabwe, and the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. His works also form part of private collections in Switzerland, South Africa and Italy.
