Juan Logan was born in Nashville, Tennessee in 1946. He attended Clark College in Atlanta, Georgia and Howard University in Washington, D.C., studying African and European art, craftsmanship and design.
Logan works with a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, prints and drawing. His works have been praised for their strong symbolism and visual impact as well as for his technical mastery.
Logan has shown his works in the United States and internationally since 1969, both as an individual and in group exhibitions. In 1991, he was selected for a North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship and in 1995, he was commissioned by the Board of Trustees of the Gaston County Public Library to create an interactive sculpture. Also in 1995, Logan mounted an exhibit of linocut prints, taken from his series, “Blues Suite for Rwanda”, at the Isabel Neal Gallery in Chicago, Illinois. Juan Logan lives and works in Belmont, North Carolina on land settled by his family in 1848.
