SEXY. SMART. INSANELY SKILLED. THESE WORDS ONLY BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THE ENIGMATIC ARTIST ZACHARI LOGAN. Text & Photographs by Paul Bruno
One of the most technically talented artists I've ever had the privilege to meet & get to know, Zachari's drawings and paintings are guaranteed to grab your attention. Not only for their beauty & meticulous detail, but because all of his work has one thing in common: the subject, namely himself. Mr. Logan is known for working exclusively in self portraiture (typically nude).
This move may sound egotistical or arrogant, but really, it's nothing short of genius. Namely, because he is his own publicist. Not only are you admiring his work, but whether you're aware of it or not, you're admiring him; memorizing his face, his hair, his tattoos, and even his foreskin. On top of that, you are admiring an image he has created for himself – the way you perceive him is the way that he wants to be perceived. If you're impressed with his work, chances are that it's not only because of his incredibly detailed eye, but because the personas in his self portraits are arresting. Zachari is a master of self projection, and has created an image not only for his artwork, but for himself as well. An image that can be — well, whatever you want him to be. And, boy, has it been effective! Zachari's body of work is remarkably large (and collected) for an artist of only 29 years.
Zachari lent himself to DIRTY, to be our muse for a day, with only one caveat: he only poses nude for himself. The images speak for themselves - it really is no wonder that Mr. Logan has chosen himself as his exclusive subject.
