Exhibition History: New York, Piezo Electric Gallery, Richard Hambleton, September 1983
Press:(People Magazine, June 1984). Deft brushstrokes emerge from clouds of dark paint splatters, forming effortless figures captured in a moment of action. Painted on canvas rather than on the side of a building or under a bridge like the majority of the street artist’s early works, Battle Scene Painting is no less dramatic. Indeed, more than 1,000 people trudged through a Manhattan snowstorm in March of 1984, a year after the execution of Battle Scene Painting, to view Hambleton’s larger-than-life canvases, works on linen, and mirrored Plexiglas work at the Salvatore Ala Gallery.
