Richard Mayhew (born April 3, 1924) is an Afro-Native American landscape painter. His abstract landscapes are informed by his experiences as an African American/Native American and his interest in the performing arts. He was a member of Spiral, a black painters' group in the 1960s in New York that included Romare Bearden, Charles Alston and Hale Woodruff as members.[1][2][3][4][5][6]
