Catalogue Note

Canadian artist Richard Hambleton began his career at the Vancouver School of Art before starting his 'Image Mass Murder' series in 1976. This street art series - which mimicked the look of chalk outlines used during police crime scene investigations – gained the artist immediate attention upon moving to New York. He then moved to his 'Shadowman' series, in which figures, like the one depicted in the current lot, were painted on the sides of buildings throughout downtown New York. The artist concurrently began painting Shadowmen on a variety of surfaces traditionally associated with fine art such as canvas and various papers.
