Logan Maxwell Hagege ( 1980– )

< BACK TO ARTISTS

Logan Maxwell Hagege, b. 1980, Los Angeles, California, (United States)

 
The American Southwest comes to life in Hagege’s angular images that capture the spare beauty of an arid landscape and of an ancient and enduring Native American culture shaped by the extremes of its environment.  Hagege is constantly challenging himself with new ideas and new ways of looking at the same subject.
 
Logan Hagege’s interest and ability in fine art were evident from an early age.  Inspiration began with visits to his grandmother who lived in the California desert.  Serious study in art started for Hagege when interest in animation sent him to a local art school.  His interest quickly moved from animation to fine art.  While attending life drawing classes and later an advanced Master’s Program in a classic atelier program, modeled after traditional French art schools, his studies involved spending more than six hours per day drawing and painting live models.  Hagege also studied privately with Steve Huston and Joseph Mendez.  
 
Extensive travels and extended stays in various landscapes in the American Southwest contributed to his repertoire of subjects.  Hagege’s evolution from landscape to figure and now a combination of both was a natural progression in his art that Hagege continues to push to its limits in his own unique style.  Logan finds encouragement and guidance in masters of the past such as Gustav Klimt, N.C. Wyeth, T.W. Dewing and Maynard Dixon.
