, London. His studios were also where Malcolm McLaren

staged the notorious "Valentine's Ball" in 1976, at which the Sex Pistols
first came to media attention.
In 1991 a major retrospective of his work was held at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford
. The purpose-built Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture, at Berriew
in the Welsh Marches
, now houses much of his sculpture and painting. It is the nation's only museum devoted to a living artist. His work is also in numerous museums and private collections around the world.
Since the early Nineties, Andrew Logan has continued to exhibit his sculptures and jewellery all over the world including Saint Petersburg
in Russia, Lithuania
, India, Beverly Hills
in Los Angeles and Mexico. His work has been shown in and commissioned by international galleries, including the American Visionary Art Museum
