Andrew Logan belongs to a unique school of English eccentrics. One of Britain's principal sculptural artists, he challenges convention, mixes media and plays with our artistic values.
Born in Oxford in 1945, he qualified in architecture in the late 1960s and has worked across the fields of decoration, sculpture, stage design, drama, opera, parades and festivals. To him, "Art can be discovered anywhere". Logan crosses cultures and embodies artistic fantasy in a unique and unprecedented way. His work is the art of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour. It is an art which resounds with the exuberant excess of a Busby Berkeley musical.
Since its beginnings, Logan's work has depended on the inventive use of whatever was to hand. With flair and fantasy he transformed real objects into their new and different versions. His nature reserve includes fauna, flora, planets and gods. His love of travel provides the bases for several series of work.
From his early fame also as the founder of the Alternative Miss World in 1972 - now an Institution amongst London's fashionable crowd - he has become an influential artist of international stature, with exhibitions as far a field as USA, Mexico, Azerbaijan, Latvia and Russia.
His sculptures can be found in public collections the world over, such us: National Portrait Gallery, London; Madame Tussauds, London; Cleveland Jewellery Collection, Cleveland Craft Centre, Middlesborough; National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside; Arts Council of Great Britain; Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charitable Foundation, London; The Australian Gallery of National Art, Sydney; Costume Institute, Metropolitan Museum of New York, USA; Warner Bros, UK; American Museum of Visionary Art, Baltimore, USA; The Royal Opera House, London; Jersey Heritage Trust, Jersey; Guys and St Thomas’ Charitable Foundation, and Swarovski. .

Andrew has a cult following, with admirers traveling to a small village in Wales to see his dazzling creations in the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, the first museum in Europe dedicated to a singular, living artist. Logan is refreshingly unpretentious, a true visionary, pursuing his Artistic Adventure.
