Holden Head was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Growing up in the South was largely influential to his understanding of the world. Currently he works in sculpture with an emphasis on the figurative and performative. His work centers around the tragicomic. A self proclaimed optimistic nihilist, learning to love the horrible parts of life. He holds a BFA in photography from Watkins College of Art (2016) and a MFA from the University of Chicago (2020). Recent exhibitions include solo shows in Chicago, IL and Nashville, TN. He recently attended the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild artist residency in New York.
