Zachari Logan, born in Saskatoon (Saskatchewan) in 1980, is a Canadian artist working mainly in drawing, ceramics, and installation practices. His work has been exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions worldwide, including the Leslie-Lohman Museum in Manhattan.

Zachari Logan has taken the path of finesse. Staging his own body, his pencil tips explore questions of identity and masculinity, with nature-bodies that celebrate re-wilded flesh as vibrant as a summer field where nature reigns unfettered. This sensual embodiment is nearly a metaphoric divinity, so entwined that knowing who dovetails who, whether man or nature, remains untold. For behind obvious pictorial references (Dürer and Millet come to mind in his dainty sketches and predilection for certain plants, or Arcimboldo in ravaged plant faces), the artist is claiming a queer identity, laying the groundwork for political action that is at once powerful and delicate. Reflecting this, large pastel frescoes evoke dreamlike strolls, recreating an olfactory paradise steeped in visual, sensory realism.
