“When he throws white or black on the canvas, his waves break, his rodeo rider bucks, a man shot seems blown apart” - New York Times Art Critic, Michael Brenson on Hambleton’s exceptional skill at handling paint.
The “Godfather of Street Art”, Richard Hambleton, exploded onto the public art scene in the 1980’s with his paintings featuring a mysterious figure - The Shawdoman. Very often a “Shawdowman” could be found in a dark alley or lurking just around a street corner. His “Shawdowman” and “Marlboro Man” work is now iconic in street art culture and in the art world.
