29 Jul: Logan Hicks Tunnel Vision mural unveiling

Tunnel Vision
The mural is set to be certified by Guinness World Records on July 29th, 2021.

"This started with a vision of going beyond making just a mural. I wanted to make an environment where people could forget they were in the middle of the city  - even if only for a minute."    ~ Logan Hicks

Taglialatella Galleries is honored to announce the official unveiling of Tunnel Vision by Logan Hicks - the largest stenciled mural in the world. 

Read the full press release.

In the middle of 2020, during the height of the pandemic in New York City, Logan Hicks was commissioned to creatively re-imagine a massive breezeway at the East River Plaza in Harlem. Nearly a year later, Hicks completes his largest work to date - a 19,000 sq. ft installation entitled “Tunnel Vision”. This work consists of a continuous stenciled mural that wraps the inside the towering breezeway, paired with a custom designed sound installation. The mural is set to be certified by Guinness World Records on July 29th, 2021.

Behold layers of stenciled aerosol transforming gray concrete into lush greenery, climbing up each of the thirty-foot walls and pillars, meeting at the ceiling painted in a vibrant, sky-blue gradient. Looking closely, tucked in the green thicket covering the walls are dozens of stenciled birds that live within New York State, while the four-hour looping soundtrack brings them to life - featuring the calls of every bird indigenous to New York.

Banksy Loses More Copyrights to His Art

“This is a case about intention”: Banksy’s trademark troubles continue as EUIPO invalidates four more marks

  • The EUIPO Cancellation Division upholds four invalidation applications
  • Hits out at artist’s efforts “to circumvent the law” through evidence of use
  • Dispute with Full Colour Black has resulted in six cancellations, one case pending

The EUIPO Cancellation Division has declared four of street artist Banksy’s trademarks invalid, hitting out at his efforts “to circumvent the law”. The decisions mean that six Banksy marks have now been invalidated in a series of cases brought by Full Colour Black. The lawyer representing the company has welcomed the latest decisions but adds: “The only concerns are that, to date, Banksy has not paid any costs. One hopes that a winding-up order won’t be necessary.”

A well-known graffiti artist is suing the NYPD for painting over his street mural, arguing that the police department’s recent citywide clean-up mission “endangers hundreds of valuable, recognized, and permitted artworks.”

Michael McLeer, 51, who also goes by Michael Kaves, filed his lawsuit as a class action, asking that other street artists join him in his battle against the paint police.
