My artwork reflects the world that I see, in my own way. In my mind, the greatest artists in history have shown us a different way to see the world, a chance to look through their eyes. I try my best to live up to the high standards that the great artists who came before me have set. This is a lifelong task that I am happy to take on.
TRADITIONALLY TRAINED in a local Los Angeles classic atelier program, Logan Maxwell Hagege’s interests and ability in fine art were evident from the beginning. His studies involved spending more than six hours per day drawing and painting live models. While at the atelier program, Hagege also studied privately with Steve Huston and Joseph Mendez.
Inspiration for his subjects began at an early age when he would visit his grandmother, who lived in the California desert, as well as during his extensive travels and extended stays in various landscapes in the American Southwest. Hagege’s subjects are contemporary American Indians living in the Southwest as well as modern landscapes that are timeless in life and in his works. Hagege’s evolution from landscape to figure, and now a combination of both, formed a natural progression in his art. He continues to push his art to its limits in his own unique style. One idea that drives his work is that evolution in art is never ending. He is constantly challenging himself with new ideas and new ways of looking at the same subject.
