Lovemore is known for his pointillist style of painting, where daubs of paint coalesce into large vibrant scenes bringing contemporary Zimbabwe to life. Lovemore has a reputation as a chronicler of the people – as a social critic through his art, he cannot help but enter a political commentary as the economic and political situation in Zimbabwe impacts every sphere of life.
