Arrivals And Departures || Logan Hicks
Arrivals and Departures is the first and only collection of works by Logan Hicks, one of the most acclaimed street and stencil artists in the world. His stunning murals plastered on the surfaces of New York City have been sown in to the public consciousness and this book further immortalises his work. Representing five years of his extraordinary installations, travels, thoughts, and ideas, the book allows an immersive insight into his unique iconography and the stories that inspired it.
Hicks’ work focuses on the perception of the environment, at times humanising its architectural angles and structures, and at others using its vastness to explore self-identity. With an old master’s approach to lighting, Hicks sculpts ordinary architectural scenes into deeply metaphorical and contemplative imagery through stencilled aerosol.
It is this symbiotic relationship with the city that fuels his work. Each person is an active cell that circulates nutrients through the city veins. Each building blocks a path. Each wall blocks a view. Each door hides an opening. The city creates its own reality in a labyrinth of limited possibilities.
