Watching Incredible Stencil Artist "Logan Hicks" in Paris!


Paris is full of surprises....
New York based Logan Hicks painting live on the street!
Hicks's multi-layers of stencil style has left a lasting mark on the stencil art community.





After spray painting his large canvas black...
Hicks creates a precision stenciled background....


Than his real magic begins...
His stencils?
He first photographs people and landscapes, prints them, and cuts into stencils!





The first layer is revealed...

But this is ONLY the FIRST of many layers to follow!



With great precision, he replaces the stencils...and continues the next layer....



another layer completed...
This process continues for hours...
Hicks has been known to use as many as 40 layers!



The finished work..."near photorealism"

The man lifting the woman in a pool of water...
her arms floating underwater...
.from stencils and spray paint...

AND the talent of Logan Hicks!
