He was born at Witney, Oxfordshire, in England. He was educated as an architect at the Oxford School of Architecture , graduating in 1970. As the founder of the Alternative Miss World in 1972 (which he continues to run) he became a key figure in London's cultural and fashion life. He notably influenced film-maker Derek Jarman, whose early film-making work documented the social scene around Andrew Logan and his studios at Butler's Wharf, London. His studios were also where Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood staged the notorious "Valentine's Ball" in 1976, at which the Sex Pistols first came to the media's 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.
His work blends camp pop-art and neo-romanticism to form a quintissentially English 'eccentricity of vision'.
