Richard Hambleton

Richard Hambleton (b. 1954) is a conceptual artist known for his public art works and was one of the founding figures of the Lower East Side art movement in New York City.  Born in Vancouver, Canada, he studied at the Emily Carr School of Art and the San Francisco Institute of Art.  His series Image Mass Murder was his first widely publicized public art work in which he staged fictitious and graphic murders. In 1982, he began his Shadowmen series in which he painted ominous life-sized figures splashed and brushed with black paint on buildings and other structures across New York City.  Moving beyond public art, he produced a variation of his shadow work as paintings.
