The rugged beauty and tension of Richard Hambleton's ‘Shadowmen’ earned him the title of ‘the godfather of street art’ in 1980s New York. This original Shadowman painted by Richard in 1985 demonstrates the raw energy of his work that both terrified and captivated the streets of the East Village.
A contemporary of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hambleton went on to inspire street artists like Banksy, JR and Blek le Rat. Find out more about the collection on our blog.
