Logan Hicks Takes Over the Bowery Wall

Words:

Logan Hicks has been bestowed the honour of working the Bowery Wall in his hometown of NYC. This is no small achievement. The Bowery Wall, located at the corner of Houston and the Bowery, was made famous by Keith Haring in 1982. The property has been in the possession of the Goldmans since 1984 and has been transformed into a rotating exhibition featuring some of the most prominent contemporary artist from around the world. The project was initiated in 2008 and welcomes the artwork of a couple of artist every year. Notable artists who have created murals for the Bowery Wall are Ron English, Lady Aiko, Cope2 and Shepard Fairey (to name only a few). 

The mural is in progress and we look forward to seeing it evolve throughout the week, stay tuned!

Logan Hicks is known for his intricately detailed stencil work. Cut out by hand or by laser cutter, Hicks’ pieces can be comprised of up to 40 layers and are often described as photorealistic. Layer by layer, Hicks’ creates incredible urban landscapes. The images are based on photographs taken around New York, specifically during late night walks intended to capture those rare quiet moments in the city that never sleeps. As a result, Hicks’ artwork embodies a uniquely somber quality.

Station 16 Gallery recently hosted an exhibition titled STENCILED which featured artwork by Logan Hicks. Some of the artwork from that show is still available, click here to have a look and maybe scoop up one of these incredible pieces for your own collection!
