Andrew Logan

Andrew Logan (born 1945) is an English sculptor, performance artist, jewellery-maker, portraitist and painter.

He was born at Witney, Oxfordshire, in England. He was educated as an architect at the Oxford School of Architecture, graduating in 1970. As the founder of the "Alternative Miss World" in 1972 (which he continues to run) he became a key figure in London's cultural and fashion life. He notably influenced film-maker Derek Jarman, whose early film-making work documented the social scene around Andrew Logan and his studios at Butler's Wharf, London. His studios were also where Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood staged the notorious "Valentine's Ball" in 1976, at which the Sex Pistols first came to media attention.

In 1991 a major retrospective of his work was held at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford. The purpose-built Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, at Berriew in the Welsh Marches, now houses much of his sculpture and painting. It is the nation's only museum devoted to a living artist. His work is also in numerous museums and private collections around the world.

Since the early Nineties, Andrew Logan has continued to exhibit his sculptures and jewellery all over the world including Saint Petersburgh in Russia, Lithuania, India, Beverly Hills in Los Angeles and Mexico. His work has been shown in and commissioned by international galleries, including the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, the Flower East Gallery in London, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Hayward Gallery, Bonhams, the National Portrait Gallery, Sotheby in London, the Royal Academy of Arts, and Somerset House.

In London, he has exhibited in diverse venues, including Trafalgar Square, in the foyer of Sadlers Wells theatre and in West End cinemas. His lifesize horse sculptures, Pegasus 1 and 11 were displayed at Heathrow Airport, and his 'Icarus' sculpture hangs in Guy's Hospital. The P & O Superliner ‘Arcadia’ commissioned him to sculpt his Cosmic Eggs (8 ft. tall), and his Mermaid Chandelier was exhibited at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, U.S.A.

In the new millennium, Andrew Logan created jewelled sculptures for The Magic Flute Opera in San Diego. In 2006, Andrew Logan’s eleventh "Alternative Miss World" contest was held at the Hippodrome in London. He went on to give an Art workshop at the Jaipur Heritage Festival in India.

Andrew Logan is also a qualified yoga teacher and gave a Presentation of Yoga art show in London. He then did a jewellery presentation with Emmanuel Ungaro in Paris.

In 2007, Andrew Logan continues to be prolific, diversifying his talent in all mediums. In May, he was invited to be part of the jury for a children's beauty contest in Sochi. In July, his jewellery was auctioned at Halls Fine Art in Shrewsbury. In August, he was invited by Comme des Garcons to Tokyo and Kyoto for their catwalk show, which was inspired by his style and jewellery. He was asked to decorate a guitar for a high profile charity auction held in London. In August, he was invited to participate in three events in "The Big Draw": he collaborated with Zandra Rhodes on "The Big Picture Frame" at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, he gave a presentation of his watercolours in The Newsroom at the The Guardian and in Covent Garden.

In December 2007, Andrew Logan attended a dinner party at Zandra Rhodes' penthouse which was filmed by a london based photographer Ben Charles Edwards, entitled Eat Your Chiffon.

Andrew Logan's work blends camp pop-art and neo-romanticism to form a quintessentially English 'eccentricity of vision'.
