​​Bruce Graham Western Art

about

Bruce Graham is a western artist know for ability to capture dramatic light and color in his oil paintings. Born in 1961 in New York City, he spent his childhood in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. Graham had an early connection to cowboys and western art. His grandfather had owned the famous Two Dot Ranch, near Cody, Wyoming during the heyday of large, western cattle ranches. 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 Russell, Bierstadt, and Moran. From an early age, Graham was inspired to make a life for himself which included both art and the western lifestyle. 


Unified by the use of light and color, his subject matter ranges from cowboys and horses to Native Americans and landscapes.
