Richard Myburgh (b.1984) is a visual artist and graphic designer based in Cape Town, South Africa.
His drawings in ink and watercolour combine both spontaneous and controlled brush marks. Portraits make up his primary subject matter, but paradoxically, they do not represent anyone in particular. The drawings are mostly anonymous and ambiguous, lacking specific characteristics and references to sex, race or culture. The artworks are thus open to multiple interpretations, with the viewer invited to determine the narrative.
Myburgh has participated in exhibitions including Sasol New Signatures 2018, Skrif, at Woordfees 2018 and Ink on paper (2018–2019) at the La Motte Museum, where his work was shown alongside the likes of John Muafangejo, Cecil Skotnes and Irma Stern.
