Logan Hicks is back at the Bowery Graffiti Wall this week for round 2. The stencil artist extraordinaire returned to the fold on Wednesday morning, diving headlong into recreating his multilayered mural, “Story of My Life.”

As previously reported, the artwork explores the “past, present and future here in New York City, telling the story of his life through the people who have touched him.” The scene taking shape on the wall was captured in SoHo.

And since taggers are always a problem with these periodic installations, Goldman Properties hired 24/7 security to watch the joint. Crazy, right?

This high-profile reboot at the Graffiti Wall follows a few weeks after the infrastructure proved unfit to the task, and the piece permanently blacked out. Three days of Hicks’ hard work disappeared behind a layer of black paint. The poor condition of the enclosure, exacerbated by the excessive heat and downpours during the final week of July, was blamed for the erasure. Owner Goldman Properties ultimately remedied the situation, though, and the facade was completely rebuilt.

Hicks hopes to complete the piece by end of day on Sunday.
