Charles was born in 1974 in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. After leaving school in 1993, he studied at Mzilikazi Art and Craft Centre in Bulawayo, where he specialized in fine art.

After leaving Mzilikazi, Charles became a resident artist at the National Gallery in Bulawayo. He has since participated in many joint exhibitions and has also been commissioned to paint astounding murals for Zimbabwean organizations.

Over the years Charles has found fulfillment as an abstract expressionist. His technique involves a unique blend of colors, which Charles describes are “lyrical”.  The abstractions are typical and depictive of Charles' style in a general sense. However, Charles loves to experiment with heightened colors along with prominent, elegant techniques in his figurative works.

Group exhibitions featuring Charles' work include the Harare International Festival of the Arts Exhibition in 2000, numerous Visual Artists' Association of Bulawayo (VAAB) Annual Exhibitions and at the NSA Gallery in Durban in 2004. He was awarded first prize for painting at the 2001 VAAB Exhibition.

In 2006, Charles had a solo exhibition at the Hyatt Hotel Johannesburg and a two-man show at the National Gallery Harare with Khumbulani Mpofu.
