A street art impressionist? A couple of months ago at Gallery Bomb in Dallas, I saw Steve Hamilton’s work for the first time. From a few meters away I could appreciate a well done execution of graphite portraits on cardboard. From a closer look, tiny speckles of spray paint gather amongst the multi-layering of white, grey and blacks. Phenomenal. Stenciling at the highest level of patience.
