Description

In the early 1980s, the photographer Tom Warren began the collaboration series in which he photographed an artist and invited them to paint on the surface to complete an artistic portrait. The idea was encouraged by James Poppitz, a director of legendary South Bronx Gallery Fashion Moda, where the graffiti and street art scene that had been flourishing was introduced to a larger audience. Richard Hambleton was a star of the Downtown art scene, spraying his haunting “Shadowman” on the walls of the dilapidated walls of the Lower East Side and East Village (see lots 54 and 59). In the current lot, Hambleton painted in a way starkly contrasting the Shadowman series, in a manner known as his “Beautiful Painting” style, where he uses vibrant colors to created tempestuous landscapes.
