About Tom HollandView Profile »
Tom Holland grew up in San Mateo, California, and attended San Mateo High School. Upon graduation he went to Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, where he was mentored by Mark Hatfield who was then the Dean of Men. When Hatfield entered politics, he hired Holland to drive him to campaigning locations. It was while waiting in the car during Hatfield's public appearances that Holland began painting watercolors. Holland began to focus seriously on a career in painting while at Willamette, and he subsequently transferred to the University of California, Berkeley.
His work has been described as taking inspiration from Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism, and he has been called one of California's most important contemporary artists and was featured in Art in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945–1980: An Illustrated History. His work has been labeled exhilarating and visually challenging, playing games and distorting the three dimensional space.
