A protege of Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat, Richard Hambleton had an interest in public art early in his career. His "Shadowman" paintings could be found splashed across hundreds of buildings throughout New York in the 1980s. His work is part of MOMA's permanent collection, and has been shown at two Venice Biennales, as well as a major retrospective presented by Giorgio Armani.
LAII (aka Angel Ortiz) was discovered as a teen by Keith Haring, who later claimed the young artist was a major influence. Haring collaborated extensively with LAII, and the pair showed together at Tony Shafrazi, Robert Fraser and Jeffery Deitch. LAII is still working today, showing at major galleries and museums worldwide.
