Logan Maxwell Hagege

Logan Maxwell Hagege was born and raised in Los Angeles. His classical training in fine art allowed him to depart from formal realism and focus on modern design principles. He is known for combining techniques and focusing on contemporary Native Americans living in the Southwest, modern landscapes, bucking broncs, and other American relics. Hagege’s figures are situated proudly in stylized Southwestern landscapes, evoking contemporary standpoints while conjuring the past. His signature clouds are featured in many of his works, silhouetting the angular figures and more pronounced features of his Native American subjects. Hagege credits childhood trips to the California desert to visit his grandmother as early inspirations for his art.

Hagege’s evolution from landscape to figure and now a combination of both was a natural progression in his art. He continues to push 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. Hagege paints in a 2,000-square-foot studio in Old Agoura Hills, California, and splits his time between his mid-century home in Los Angeles and a desert home in remote Arizona. His work is in museum collections nationwide, including the Autry Museum of the American West, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, and the Briscoe Museum.
