"Whether landscape, wildlife or western, my work is emotionally charged through fearless color, tenacious light, and a divergence in contrast."
Lifetime Montana resident Colt Idol has always been enamored with “The West” and all that it represents. After an injury-plagued high school and collegiate basketball career Colt decided to pursue art full-time. With the guidance of his father, Dick Idol, a renowned outdoor personality and artist, Colt was able to develop his abilities and advance his knowledge of art – he had undoubtedly found his passion.
Colt lives in Whitefish, Montana. He participates in annual shows including the Safari Club International, Out West Art Show, Miniatures by the Lake, and the C.M. Russell Museum events. Colt’s artwork and his growth as an artist continue to rise expeditiously.
