Bruce Graham

Bruce Graham is a western artist known for his ability to capture dramatic light and color in his oil paintings.

Born in 1961, Graham had an early connection to cowboys and western art. During the heyday of large western cattle ranches, his grandfather owned the famous Two Dot Ranch near Cody, Wyoming. As part of a family with historical roots in the Big Horn Basin, Bruce was surrounded by the stories and artifacts of life on the Two Dot. He was fascinated by his grandfather's collection of western art which included pieces by Remington, Russell, Bierstadt, and Moran. From an early age, Graham was inspired to make a life for himself that included both art and the western lifestyle.

Graham’s range of subject matter is unified by his use of color and light.  "At this point in my career, I'm driven by the act of painting itself. Every day is a study in light, color, value, and brush strokes. I'm inspired to carry on the tradition of the artists who came before me --- artists who captured images of the west in bold and adventurous ways."  

Graham’s award winning work has been collected by numerous corporations, including Bayer, Mars, Cargill, King Ropes, and Apache Oil. Recent museum acquisitions include Whitney Western Art Museum and the Brinton Museum.
