PHOTOS In Process: Logan Hicks in Djerba
Most people see stencil artist Logan Hick’s finished products- photorealistic murals with intricate patterns. What they don’t realize is the intense process and multiple layers that make up each piece. I always joke with him on his art-hands, asking why he doesn’t use gloves- but he isn’t painting a wall, he’s painting through fragile stencils that would stick to the latex and mess up the piece. So, painty hands it is. Here’s some in process shots from his latest piece in Djerba, on an old facade facing a mosque. The island has both Jewish and Muslim history, so Hicks created a pattern inspired by both, and decided to leave off the figurative stencil he had planned, in respect for the mosque across the street.
