The Designer - Brad Holland
In a front page article of their 'Style' Section, the Washington Post called Brad Holland the 'undisputed star of American Illustration'. The editors of RSVP, the artists' directory, voted him 'the one artist, who in our opinion, has had the single greatest impact on the illustration field during the last twenty five years.' And critic Steve Heller has summed up the first 20 years of Holland's career: '...as Pollock redefined plastic art, Holland has radically changed the perception of illustration.'
Brad Holland is self-taught, and has been a professional artist since the age of 17. At 22, he began writing and drawing for underground newspapers such as Screw, Rat and The New York Ace, and publishing in such major magazines as Playboy, Avant-Guarde and The New Yorker. His ink drawings in the counter-culture press brought him to the attention of the editors of the New York Times, where, he became one of the founding artists on the Op-Ed Page. His art in Playboy led to paintings that have appeared in nearly every major U.S. and many international publications. He has painted record album covers for Ray Charles, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Billy Joel.
In 1977, T.Y. Crowell, Inc. published a book of his drawings entitled Human Scandals. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited in museums around the world and he had an early retrospective at the Museum of American Illustration. His paintings were featured in the 1985 film '9 1/2 Weeks'. He regularly designs posters for the Odeon Theatre in Vienna and the Yale Repertory Theater. He designed a U.S. postage stamp of the Indian Chief Crazy Horse, and produced a 10 foot x 30 foot mural for the United Nations building in New York.
To date he has been awarded 27 gold medals. He has twice received the Playboy Editorial Award. He received first place award at the International Biennale of Illustration in Tokyo. He was awarded the Robert Geisman Award by the Society of Illustrators and the same organization awarded him the Hamilton King Award. He received the British'Telly' award for animation. He was the subject of a documentary produced and presented on the Australian Broadcasting Company, 'The Illustrated Man.'
Brad Holland helped organize the First National Illustrator's Conference in Santa Fe. He was awarded the Walter Hortens Distinguished Service Award from the Graphic Artists Guild in New York for his articles and speeches on the effects of stock illustration agencies on the freelance illustration business.
