Documentary | 2017

Available for streaming on Amazon Video and Vudu

Richard Hambleton’s most notable works, life-sized silhouetted images of a mysterious figure known as the Shadowman, quickly gained notoriety in the 1980’s Contemporary Art scene. These expressive and gestural shadow paintings were splashed on hundreds of buildings and other structures across various New York City locations, evoking extremely visceral reactions from unsuspecting pedestrians.

Through rare archival footage of New York's underground art scene, Shadowman immerses the viewer in the chaos of Hambleton's life through the various stages of his tumultuous career as an artist and ultimately, his legacy as The Godfather of Street Art.
