Saskatoon artist unveils giant painting in New York

Zachari Logan, a gay artist from Saskatoon best known for his nude self portraits, will be unveiling a 10 foot by 18 foot painting at New York's Craig Scott Gallery this weekend. The work is very Canadian — featuring parkas, pussies and the artist's handsome self. Even the work's title, Beautiful Losers, evokes Leonard Cohen's classic art school novel.

“I have absolutely no problem with objectification. If you’re using an image, you’re always objectifying it in a way,” Logan told me a couple of weeks ago, in preparation for a monthlong exhibit at Ottawa's hip La Petite Mort gallery. For a guy who hates talking about his own work, I had a great conversation with him about religious, sexual and, uh, terrorist-y themes in his work.
