Richard Logan has pursued a varied artistic career that started in the 70s while living in the Caribbean. He began putting the colorful people and island scenery to canvas – the result of which was a series of vibrant oil paintings that caught the attention of artists-in-residence Roland Richardson, Jasper Johns and Romare Bearden.
The 80s found Logan stateside in his home town of Kansas City, Missouri where he began selling his art out of his own studio while freelancing as a graphic designer. But he missed the year ’round warmth of the tropics, packed up and moved south – this time to Florida.
Working as a creative director for Tampa Bay ad agencies in the early 90s, Logan spent his free time experimenting with his artistic side. Focusing on photography, he opened a studio and began shooting commercially for brands such as Prentice Hall, Time Warner, Talbots and International Petroleum. This national format and audience soon drew the attention of galleries, museums and collectors to his mixed media work.
With his work having been showcased and sold internationally, Logan continues to explore diverse art forms.
