Richard Hambleton – The Godfather of Street Art
Richard Hambleton (*23.06.1952 – †29.10.2017) is known reverentially as The Godfather of Street Art. The Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) is the first museum in Europe to dedicate an exhibition to his pioneering role. As one of the very first street artists, to this day Hambleton inspires figures like Banksy, Blek le Rat and JR. In honour of the third anniversary of this legendary artist’s death, MUCA presents an exceptional show, Richard Hambleton – the forgotten Shadowman.
