Artist Richard Hambleton, left, and John Woodward, owner of Woodward Gallery, were recently hanging out in Ghost Bar on Eldridge St. Hambleton, who lives on the Lower East Side, has been called the godfather of street art. He’s most famous for his “Shadowman” pieces from the early 1980s, life-sized silhouhettes that were paintined and splashed with black paint on buildings all around New York City, often in dark alleys or lurking around a corner, designed to have maximum impact on the unsuspecting viewer.
