Colt Idol is 27 and lives in Whitefish, MT. He has always been enamored with “The West” and all that it represents. Colt’s artistic endeavors are inspired by the history that’s right behind us, and of the cultures of our ancestors that lived on the very land we live today. His artistic expression lies in highlighting a timeless, symbolic, and ambient West of old, to this new daring and vibrant era in which we live today.
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, renowned outdoor personality and artist, Colt was able to develop his abilities and advance his knowledge of art-he had undoubtedly found his passion. He participates in annual shows including the Out West Art Show, the C.M. Russell Museum events and Settlers West Galleries Summer and Fall Shows. He was selected as one of Southwest Art’s 21 Artists under the age of 31 to collect.
