Richard Scott (b. 1969) lives in Cape Town.

He uses a combination of vibrant colours, thick lines and texture to create paintings with a modern and playful edge in the naive art tradition.

He is known for his entrepreneurial approach to his art practice and has worked with important brands that include Vespa, the Tutu Foundation and Woolworths (SA).
