A product of dual heritage, Tamary Kudita was born in Zimbabwe whilst her ancestry can be traced back to the Orange Free State, historical Boer state in Southern Africa. She studied fine art at Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. There, she graduated in 2017 with a bachelor of fine arts. Subsequently, she established herself in fine art photography thus beginning her artistic career. She maintains an active studio practice and has exhibited in Zimbabwe and outside the country.
Her investigation looking at the legacy of colonialism on the family structure, has resulted in exhibitions delving into the history of the Multi layered African identity. The Betsy Gallery, Miami currently presents a solo exhibition by the artist titled African Victorian. Previous solo presentations have taken place at the Women Photographers International Archive, Miami, Florida (2021) and PH Centre Gallery in Cape town, South Africa (2018). Tamary, continued her investigation of the post-colonial identity with a touring group exhibition which was held at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe (2019) and The National Gallery of Bulawayo (2019).
