Mr Wonderful.By Richard Hambleton
‘Mr Wonderful’ is a showcase of works created by the ‘Godfather of Street Art’ – Richard Hambleton, featuring a piece that many believe to be his unsung masterpiece, ‘Mr Wonderful, 1984’, alongside twenty-one other original pieces from the artist’s nineteen eighties prime.
About Richard Hambleton.
Richard Hambleton also referred as the ‘Shadowman’ is a critically acclaimed artist that pioneered the street art movement alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat & Keith Haring in New York. Starting on the streets, and then transitioning to canvas, his creativity and artistic pedigree are unrivalled and he has inspired and paved the way for many global superstar artists such as Banksy and Blek le Rat.
“MR WONDERFUL IS A MASTERPIECE. I TRULY BELIEVE AND HOPE THAT ONE DAY THIS ARTWORK WILL BE BOUGHT OR DONATED TO A MUSEUM, PERHAPS THE MET OR MOMA IN NEW YORK, WHERE HAMBLETON LIVED AND WORKED FOR OVER FORTY YEARS.”
