Hamilton Glass


Currently based in Richmond, VA, Glass grew up in Philadelphia where he experienced different cultures and art. As a young child his mother constantly enrolled him in art classes at the Philadelphia Institute of Art, where he began his journey as an artist.

Glass obtained his bachelor’s degree in Architecture at Hampton University and went on to work with numerous architecture firms in Virginia and New Jersey. What makes his work unique is the use of architectural elements within graffiti like the line work or ‘drafting’ that creates the dynamic backgrounds of his pieces. Elements that are common within his work are freehand shapes executed with graffiti hand styles, along with unpredictable raw mediums and bold bright colors.
