That fresh coat of blue paint on the Suffolk Street facade of the grungy Burger King is actually primer. Primer for the new mural currently planned for the wall. New York City-based painter and stencil artist Logan Hicks is behind this forthcoming artwork, which serves as an extension to his recent exhibit at PMM Art Projects (“Love Never Saved Anything”). He’s reportedly pulling imagery from “The Ocean Washed Away Time” painting.

The base layer was applied yesterday, with paintwork ongoing through the end of the week. Projected completion is pegged at May 16.

The Little Italy Street Art Project (L.I.S.A.) united with Liquitex (created first water-based acrylic in 1955) to co-sponsor the new Logan Hicks piece.

The brick box at 146 Delancey once upon a time operated as the Loew’s Delancey movie theater.

It’s worth revisiting this Hicks sound-byte from back in February:

As an artist, I hope that the issues or ideas or feelings that I have when I create work is universal, and that other people can connect with it. Although I might have specific narratives or experiences that I base my paintings on, I don’t think that it’s important to put those out there on the front end. I feel like work is successful when strangers feel attached to in it in some way, or when they become invested in it emotionally. The story that I have behind it then simply adds a second layer of appreciation.
