b.1995, South Africa


Akshar Maganbeharie is an artist who works primarily in painting and drawing. He completed a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2017, and is currently living and working in Cape Town. He says, “My art is influenced by popular culture and social media. Through the use of popular iconography, abstract forms, colour and texture, I question the media I grew up consuming and investigate how these influences have permeated through my identity. My three biggest inspirations are Britney Spears, Starbucks, and Kylie Jenner.”
