As a young child in the Bronx, drawing came naturally for Holland, but it wasn’t until high school that his skills bloomed exponentially in the School of Industrial Arts. He later went on to attend the Art Students League, School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute, all in NYC.
As a young painter he could not afford to pay live models, so Holland referenced muscular subjects in action from sports magazines. It was from athletes–– the gladiators of our time––that Holland began to understand the masculine form in its raw state of power and emotion. Inspired by the athlete’s determination and commitment for excellence, Holland began investing the same qualities into his own work in an effort to convey what both he and the athlete experience.
The aggressive and bold qualities of Holland’s work today are supported by the inspirations and influences of his youth. His “In Your Face” compositions explode off the canvas delivering a one of kind edginess that is enhanced by fierce painting techniques including bold line work, vibrant rich color, and daring shapes and forms. Stand in front of a Holland portrait and you will experience emotion, passion, and very often a priceless memory.
