Opera Gallery New York presents Logan Hicks’ Pretty Ugly. Hicks is a New York-based stencil artist whose work explores the ever changing nature of the urban environment in which he lives. Through his imagery and masterful etching technique, Hicks’ goal is to create a perfect dichotomy whereby the granular nature of the spray paint expresses the deterioration of the city. Using layers of laser-cut, hand-sprayed stencils on board, acrylic and anodized aluminum, Hicks creates works that capture the sometimes mundane cycle of city life in a haunting, yet controlled aesthetic manner. In the past year, Hicks has participated in several notable projects including creating a forty foot mural for Art Basel Miami 2010 Wynwood Walls as well as contributing new artwork to the Martha Cooper: Remix exhibition at Carmichael Gallery in California. Opera Gallery is proud to present over thirty new works by Logan Hicks.
