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 his variety of subjects, focusing on contemporary Native Americans living in the Southwest, modern landscapes, bucking broncs, and other American relics. 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, which he continues to push to its limits in his 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. Today Hagege paints out his foot studio in Old Agoura Hills, California, and splits his time between his home in Los Angeles and a desert home in remote Arizona.

Hagege has exhibited widely. His work has been included annually at The Autry National Center’s Masters of the American West since 2013 and at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in the Prix de West since 2014. Hagege was further represented in the Phoenix Art Museum’s 2014 exhibition The West Select. He has had solo exhibitions at Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe, and at the Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Los Angeles.

Hagege is further represented in numerous museum collections, including The Autry Museum of the American West, Los Angeles; National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City; and the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, Indianapolis, as well as numerous private collections across the country. Among other honors, Hagege received the Gene Autry Memorial Award in 2014 and 2015; the Henry Farny Award from the Eiteljorg in 2014 and their Purchase Award in 2015; the Spirit of the West Award from the Autry Museum in 2016 and their Thomas Moran Memorial Award in 2017.
