Logan Hicks is a New York-based artist. Stenciling started as a substitution for screen-printing, but quickly morphed into Logan’s medium of choice. An ideal union was formed through these stencils: the dirty and gritty nature of spray paint showcasing the decay of the city, while the muted shine of metallic paint mirrored the faint glimmer of hope within it. It is this symbiotic relationship with the city that fuels Logan’s work. Having mastered the technique, Hicks has learned new language, and has been refining what it is that he is saying, and he uses whatever medium or approach is necessary to bring the ideas in his head to the canvas, and his newer paintings are native to his lexicon. Making art is an internal struggle more than it is a physical one.
