Adrian Banda is an artist specialized in wood sculpturing from Lusaka, Zambia. He is also a librarian and development specialist by profession.

Adrian Banda was born in Lusaka, Zambia on 7th August, 1990. He graduated from Matero Boys’ secondary school in 2008 and the University of Zambia in 2015 with a Bachelor of Library and Information Science and Development studies.

While in high school, he began to learn art outside the school curriculum from one of the local artists in 2006. Upon graduating from high school in 2008, he took up wood curving as his main career, specializing in reproducing African tribal antique arts from across Africa.  Since then he has reproduced various tribal art pieces from across the continent.

In July 2011, Adrian was admitted to study Library and Information Science and Development Studies at the University of Zambia. This however did not put a halt to his passion and work of arts as he continued working on art pieces the entire time he was pursuing his academic career. Upon graduating from the university, he started working as a part-time tutor at the University of Zambia and actively engaged in the art works.

Adrian Banda in his current position as part-time lecturer at the Information and Communication University has continued to pursue his passion in African art and has an active art workshop producing new designs as well as reproducing tribal African art. He is eager to help others acquire his skills and he is currently running a program of teaching young boys and girls tribal African art curving so as to preserve the rich culture and history behind African art.
