Logan Hicks - The A’s to Our Q’s:
style="clear:both; padding-bottom: 0.25em;">
How did you get started in creating art for the street?
/>Logan: I owned a screenprinting business in Baltimore I did
shitty T-shirts for corporations. I got bored so I started doing posters for
band gigs and clubs. That escalated and I was soon wheatpasting my own posters
and designs. When I moved to California, I didn’t have any of my screenprinting
equipment, so I started doing stencils, and that is what I do currently.
Wooster: What other street artists do you most admire
Logan: href="http://www.buffmonster.com/">Buffmonster gets out quite a bit. I enjoy
his work. Space Invader has a
pretty unique approach that I enjoy. Ron
English kills it with his billboards. The href="http://www.guerillaone.com/interviews_07_17_00/Eklips/eklips.htm">AWR MSK
crew here in LA always have some crazy shit going on. href="http://www.sheone.co.uk/">She One is nice.
What’s your favorite city, neighborhood, or block, to post and/or to
see street art?
Logan: I enjoy Silvelake Los
Angeles right now, but I like to see things everywhere. Different states,
cities. Always good to see what other people do with their area.
