Andrew Logan is a British sculptor, painter, performance artist and the creator of a high end jewellery brand. In addition to this, he is the inventor and perpetual host of 'Alternative Miss World' a surreal art event founded in 1972. He lives and works in Berriew, Powys UK where he opened his Museum - The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in 1991.

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. Since the beginning, Logan's work has depended on the inventive use of whatever was to hand. With flair and fantasy he transforms real objects into their new and different versions. His artistic world includes fauna, flora, planets and gods. His love of travel provides the inspiration for much of his work.

Born in Oxford in 1945, he qualified in architecture in the late 1960s and has worked across the fields of sculpture, stage design, drama, opera, fashion, performance and interior design. 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. From his early fame amongst London's fashionable crowd, he has become an influential artist of international stature, with exhibitions and art collectors worldwide.
