Shadowman ?/?/52 – 10/29/17

Post by odibex » Thu Nov 02, 2017 9:16 am

Kind of a seminal figure in street art, Richard "Shadowman" Hambleton passed away Sunday night. He was pretty much the inventor of street art, and like most great (and smart) street artists, ended up in the galleries doing "real" art. This is a pretty good piece and should be of interest to anybody into that sort of thing. I'm sure there's a couple of you here.

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly."

-Albert Einstein
