Born in 1971 Logan Hicks grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in the early 1990s. Before he moved to Brooklyn, New York, in 2007, he worked as a screen printer in San Diego, California, joined the art movement Lowbrow and started working with stencils. Hicks creates his well known stencils by layering pieces one on top of the other, this helps him in creating his own style with his works. The result is hyper realistic works showing urban situations in an exceptional nocturnal light. With „Story of my life“ he created an extraordinary autobiographical mural in Houston made of 1.050 stencils and images of more than 150 people.
