Hamilton Glass

Richmond, VA


Hamilton Glass (Ham?) is an artist native to Philadelphia, PA and currently based out of Richmond, Virginia. Before relocating to Richmond Hamilton attended Hampton University where he obtained his Bachelors of Architecture and went on to work within numerous architecture design firms. It’s been his journey in Richmond that has allowed Hamilton to introduce his design ideas to the city and the art community. Hamilton’s work also serves to create dialog between mainstream and underground art enthusiast. H is one of many street artists who have taken part in the on going debate as to whether graffiti belongs on a gallery wall. Influenced by the memories and experiences with street art growing up, Hamilton Glass tries to infuse the vibe and grit of the city into each piece. What makes Hamilton work unique is the use of architectural elements within graffiti like the line work. Elements that are common within Hamilton’s work are freehand shapes executed with graffiti hand styles, along with unpredictable raw mediums and bold bright colors. The nature of Hamilton’s work thrives with and around the city, which is why he is always seeking to make a impact with his large scale projects and murals.
