Christa Myburgh  teaches at Bright Studio on Friday Afternoons.

 

Christa Myburgh studied art at the University of PRETORIA and currently teaches at German School.
Her artwork is rendered in oil on canvas where she paints local young black woman from the Township in the town she lived and grew up in. She befriended all of the woman in her paintings and developed an interest for the gender politics of black woman in South-Africa. Her delicate paintings aim to re-contextualize these woman in different settings. She wishes to memorialize these woman in a prominent manner that lays testament to their triumphs and lack of acknowledgment  and specifically makes reference to Nokuthula Simelane; a young woman who was an activist and grew up in the same town as Myburgh.

 

Christian Graser  is a passionate teacher and artist. 

He teaches painting, drawing, art history and art theory. 

He currently teaches at Bright Studio on Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights.

Ross went to the JHB high school for art, ballet and music. His artistic skills landed him a job as a junior Art Director in advertising way back in 1980. During the next 33 years, he spent either creating himself or helping others create advertising that had an impact on consumers. In 1994, he co-founded The Jupiter Drawing Room, Cape Town. The real skill that Ross picked up in advertising is the ability to understand people and how to motivate them. This manifested in Ross teaching, be it his staff or students. While other men spent their spare time on the golf course or on a mountain bike, Ross spent time in his studio painting. By creating Bright, this allowed Ross to bring his three skills together: He can paint + he can teach + he understands human behaviour.

After several years in advertising as a senior Art Director and Head of Art at FCB Cape Town and studying life painting at The Ryno Swart Art Gallery, Anthony finally broke away in 2014 to pursue his passion for painting from life on a fulltime basis.

In his art Anthony celebrates the beauty and intrigue of the female form. He prefers to paint in oils on canvas, but has also developed an interesting "Pop Art" style where he uses mixed media. All his studies are inspired by live sittings where he engages with his subjects and manages to capture their beauty as well as their feelings in an impressionistic dance of light, shadow and colour.

His works are selling steadily following a number of successful shows in and around South Africa as well as the Saatchi Gallery.

Anthony lives and works in Cape Town South Africa where he is a resident artist and teacher at Bright studio in Salt River Cape Town. Anthony is now represented in New York by La Place Art Gallery.

Anthony teaches at Bright on Monday night, Tuesday night , and Wednesday morning.

Situated across the road from The Old Biscuit Mill in Salt River, Bright Creative Space started its life as a neglected warehouse. Ross and his team have lovingly renovated the space into a place where creativity can flourish. There is canvas waiting for you.
