Updates on Logan Hicks and the Bowery Wall

Words:

After a rough and tumble start, Logan Hicks is on his way to slaying New York’s Bowery Wall. A nasty attack by Mother Nature held up the artist’s first stab in late July, with a freak storm coupled with extreme heat causing the actual wall to buckle. A little over two weeks later, Hicks was able to get the lost stencil layer one re-cut, and has restarted the 70 x 20 foot wall with his crew. Five layers and 800 lbs of stencils will go into this wall, entitled “Story of my Life,” which illustrates Hicks’ iconic architectural viewpoint, mixed with a hundred or so people who have touched the artist’s life over the ten years he’s lived in New York. Stay tuned for exclusive progress shots.
