Juan Logan was born in Nashville, Tennessee. He received his Master’s of Fine Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Mount Royal School in Baltimore focusing on painting and mixed-media sculpture. He currently lives and works out of Belmont, North Carolina.
Logan’s artworks address the American experience. Simultaneously abstract and representational, his paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and videos address the convergences of race, place, and power; making the hierarchical relations and social stereotypes visible, as well as question how they shape individuals, institutions, and the material and mental landscapes of contemporary life.
Juan Logan is currently the Conservation Manager at the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Project, which is actively restoring thirty-one large-scale sculptures created by artist Vollis Simpson for the city of Wilson, NC.
