About

Painter Richard Hambleton (1954-2017) is considered one of the major artists, who, along with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, first achieved success during the art boom in New York City in the 1980s. Hambleton’s work is often compared to graffiti art, though Hambleton himself considers this work to be public art. Hambleton is best known for his Mass Murder Concept and Shadowman paintings. Mass Murder Concept was a series of works in which Hambleton would paint a chalk outline around the bodies of volunteer “homicide victims” and splash red paint within the outline, leaving behind a realistic crime scene. His later Shadowman paintings of the early 1980s resemble life-sized, silhouetted images of strange people. These silhouettes were splashed and brushed with black paint on buildings or other structures across New York City, in locations that would startle unsuspecting pedestrians, such as in dark allies or just around a street corner. Hambleton painted these Shadowman in other cities as well, including Paris and Berlin.
