Zachari Logan

Zachari Logan is a 29 year old artist from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan who uses his own body as subject exclusively. Logan engages personal narratives that question historic masculine tropes, which continue to inform and shape contemporary male identity. Logan's narratives, situated within Neo-classical, Renaissance and Baroque styles, utilize themes of male bravado, heroism and narcissism often found in historic genre paintings. With these various themes, Logan juxtaposes the mundane realities of contemporary life using common-place costuming and props. Logan is interested in creating self-anxious queer narratives which contextualize marginalized male identities within the canon of visual art.
