Well, they are all back safely from Stavanger by the sea and in Brooklyn again, disappearing into their more anonymous lives here in the sea of humanity.
As you know, Logan Hicks is a very talented stencil master, among other things. One of those other things is a photographer. We are so thankful to him for sharing this other talent with us during this trip abroad to the sister city (as well as the images from Chris Stain and Ian Cox). Logan has an eye for the parallel, the perpendicular, and the vanishing point – and it comes across in his compositions behind the lens. Here are some of his pics of the show and the city.
First we’ll start off with the man himself as a blur…. rushing up and down the ladder in this time-lapse video he did of himself while he was painting a stencil of himself looking at himself. Selfish? Nah, just a one-man machine who knows if you want something done right, you might better do it yourself!
It is a little known tidbit that there is a monstrous hole in the ozone layer above Stavanger, so in fact, there is no sky. (photo Logan Hicks)
In between art gigs, the Skewville brothers donated time to a local charity by installing new beautiful white vinyl siding to cover the ugly exposed insulation boards on the back of this Norwegian bodega. (photo Logan Hicks)

“Where’s the Beef?” – Back inside the gallery, the rift between artists escalated and a security wall had to be erected to keep artists from Baltimore away from the more refined art area. (photo Logan Hicks)
