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 nonexistent line between laughter and tears. A self proclaimed optimistic nihilist, learning to love the horrible parts of life.
