Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Juan Logan now lives and works in Belmont, North Carolina. Logan received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Juan Logan’s artworks address subjects relevant to the American experience. At once abstract and representational, his paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, and videos address the interconnections of race, place, and power. They make visible how hierarchical relations and social stereotypes shape individuals, institutions, and the material and mental landscapes of contemporary life. Logan has shown extensively nationally and internationally, and his artworks can be found in private, corporate, and public collections, including the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Gibbes Museum of Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, the Zimmerli Museum of Art, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the New York Public Library, the Mint Museum, the Chazen Museum of Art, and the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Most recently, his piece Some Clouds are Darker became part of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.
