Billie Zangewa’s silk tapestries mirror the world of the contemporary urban African woman. A lauded textile artist, she describes her evocative works as visually sensual and self-exploratory. Zangewa has also ventured into singing, taking the name Billie Starr.

She says at present she is “working on a series of silk tapestries called The Final Frontier and these tell the story of the days and nights of a woman living in urban contemporary Africa.”
