Victor was educated up to Junior secondary level. He is a self-taught artist with a very unique style of figurative and abstract art. He has qualified to enter the annual Zimbabwe Heritage exhibition since 1987 and his works have frequently received high accolade. In 1990, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Robert G. Mugabe, presented him a prize for his excellence at the Zimbabwe Development Bark.
Being a soft-spoken man, it is perhaps fitting that a sculpture of his entitled `Silence is Golden` is a permanent collection of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe. Mike Tyson, the late Miles Davis and actor Danny Glover also own pieces entitled The Boxer, Musician and Spiritual Flower, respectively, from Victor Mutongwizo. Galleries in USA, France, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Britian, Guatemala and Singapore also own some of his sculpturing talent.
Victor loves reading, music and literature.
