Long called the “Shadowman” for the spectral, splashy, black silhouettes that he painted throughout Lower Manhattan beginning in 1980, the artist’s practice was defined by his anonymous figures, which seemed to emerge from nowhere, leaping in heroic action or skulking undetected. For Hambleton, these figures “could represent watchmen or danger or the shadows of a human body after a nuclear holocaust or even my own shadow” (The artist quoted in, The New York Times, “Richard Hambleton, ‘Shadowman’ of the ’80s Art Scene, Dies at 65,” November 13, 2017).

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.

This work was featured in Shadowman, a documentary film directed by Oren Jacoby and released in April 2017.
