First show: December 08

When one thinks about New York City’s art scene in the early 1980s, Jean-Michel Basquiat is typically the first name that comes to mind. Back in those days, however, Richard Hambleton was just as notorious within the city’s artistic genius circle. Not unlike today’s Banksy, Hambleton created his singular paintings—black, ghost-like silhouettes plastered on Manhattan’s buildings walls—out of plain sight, earning him a larger-than-life reputation. Just like that, though, Hambleton disappeared from the NYC art scene, succumbing to drug abuse and homelessness. Shadowman revisits Hambleton’s bygone legacy, and finds him today, still painting and unrecognized among New York City’s street art legends (Matt Barone, Tribeca Film Festival).
