#happybirthday #richardhambleton (b. 1952)! -Born in Vancouver, BC and relocated to NYC in the late 70’s, Richard Art Hambleton became popular by using the urban canvas to evoke public reaction. He is the original American Pop Expressionist with unforgettable images that have permeated our collective consciousness for four decades now. His celebrated conceptual works include acclaimed series known as Image Mass Murder, Marlboro Man, Shadowman, Shadow Head Portraits, Horse and Riders, and Beautiful Paintings. A 2017 documentary film, Shadowman by Oren Jacoby chronicles his rise. (The Perpetual Show at Flavio Belli Gallery, Toronto 1982) #shadowman #conceptual #artist #streetart
