Logan Hicks

Logan Hicks is a New York-based stencil artist whose work explores
the dynamics of the urban environment. Originally a screenprinter, Logan’s work gained notoriety due to his ability to capture the sometimes mundane cycle of city life in a haunting, yet refined way with his hand sprayed stencil paintings.

Stenciling started as a substitution for screenprinting,
but quickly morphed into my medium of choice. Each stencil is used
to apply a thin layer of paint to slowly render the painting. 
This method of applying layer after layer was the perfect metaphor
for the subjects he was painting. The layers of the city were literal in the paintings.
 Within my work, I try to draw a parallel between the cold, harsh city and a warm, vibrant organism. It is alive; a breathing creature where the people do not exist within it, but rather along side of it. 
It is this symbiotic relationship with the city the fuels my work.
 Each person is an active cell that circulates the nutrients
through the city veins. I think that sometimes people do not realize
how the city affects them. Each building blocks a path. 
Each wall blocks a view. Each door hides an opening. 
The city effectively blocks out the outside world and creates
its own reality. The city is a labyrinth of limited possibilities. 
Within my work, I try to explore those microcosms that only
exist in the city. The niches of city life that epitomize the urban existence. The confined spaces on subways, honeycomb living structures, 
the ebb and flow of people washing over the sidewalks like a rogue wave on the beach.
 These are the things that I notice as I explore my environment.
