Why The Patrons Represents This Artist
First, Bryce is one of the co-founders of The Patrons. But there’s more to the story than just that. Initially, the concept for The Patrons was to create a network of people who wanted to support next gen artists. However, when Bryce was painting, he and Kyle realized that he created large pieces fast. They were interesting, and there was a story behind every single piece. When people viewed the pieces and heard the stories behind them, there was a lot of interest – even on his initial pieces as he was trying to find his style.
Bryce and Kyle realized he had the capacity to create thousands of thought-provoking pieces, if he focused. And since Kyle was already going to be talking to patrons, galleries, museums, and other art organizations, Kyle would represent his work.
Bryce’s portfolio of paintings is constantly growing. He typically adds 2 or 3 new large pieces each week. Bryce doesn’t shy away from questions you have about the art either. You can email him directly at [email protected] with any questions, thoughts, or insults.

About Bryce Holt
Bryce’s art is centered around two central tenets: 1) Art not only can but should be beautiful, and 2) Time is the most critical component of his art.
After looking at more than 10,000 young artists’ work, one thing became clear to him. Content is everything. The pieces that resonated with Bryce all had a story behind them. One that could be told on the canvas as well as in words.
Bryce made speed an imperative part of his work. Since he didn’t start painting until he was in his early-40’s, he knew time was not on his side. So he embraced it, committing himself to create 100+ large paintings every year, essentially as a diary of his thoughts and experiences.
Bryce made the decision to leave the corporate world and pursue painting (and The Patrons) full-time. “I’m both an artist and a patron,” says Bryce. “I collect art and I create it. It’s amazing to be able to paint each day, and to be surrounded by amazing patrons and amazing artists.”
