ACA Galleries is pleased to announce Richard Hambleton: Eternity on view June 14 through July 27, 2018 (529 West 20th Street, NYC). This exhibition showcases major paintings and works on paper from Hambleton's two signature series - Shadowmen and Horse & Rider. Widely considered the “Godfather of Street Art”, his contemporaries included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Andy Warhol.

Exhibition highlights include: a colossal unstretched canvas with five life-sized Shadowmen figures; several large single Shadowmen; and Rodeo paintings on canvas – these prime examples demonstrate Hambleton’s ability to expressively combine representation and gestural abstraction.  Coming out of private collections the majority of these works have never been exhibited before.
