Inspirational artist, Richard Mayhew

Updated: Dec 5, 2023


Richard Mayhew is an American painter born in 1924 in Amityville, New York. Known for his landscape paintings, Mayhew explores the connection between emotion and color in his artwork. 

He draws inspiration from his Native American and African American heritage and challenges the traditional landscape technique seeing  in American and European art. His work “flows” with emotion and a brilliant palate.

Mayhew was a member of the Spiral, a New York based collective that discussed the role of African American artists in the civil rights movement and American culture. His paintings reflect his deep connection to nature and the significance of Native American and African American history in the United States.

Mayhew’s work has been exhibited in various museums including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

 

At the age of 99, he continues to create and upend expectations with his inventive consciousness.
