Lifetime Montana resident Colt Idol has always been enamored “The West” and all that it represents. 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, Colt was able to develop his abilities and advance his knowledge of art – he had undoubtedly found his passion.


Colt is now 31 years old and lives in Whitefish, Montana with his wife Jennifer, their 4 year old son and newborn daughter. They own and operate the Dick Idol Signature Gallery in downtown Whitefish. Colt exhibits his work in galleries and auctions throughout the western U.S.

Whether landscape wildlife or western my work is emotionally charged through color, light and contrast. My artistic endeavors are inspired by the history that’s right behind us, and of the cultures of our ancestors that lived on the very landwe live today. My 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.
