Holt Brasher was born in the small farming town of Oak Grove, Louisiana. His earliest memories of art were the horror movies his father would rent on Fridays, video game box art, wrestling, McFarlane Toys, and his own imagination to pass time in the country. He later would graduate from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 2008 with his BFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Printmaking and began to make his next move — graduate school.
He graduated from the University of Memphis with his MFA in Printmaking after several years of solo and group exhibitions under his belt. He has participated in art exhibitions all over the United States such as the "Delta National Small Prints Exhibition" in Jonesboro, Arkansas, the "BAAC 8th Annual National Juried Exhibition" in Batesville, Arkansas, "SECAC Juried Exhibition" in Chattanooga, TN, and "Outlaws" in Lexington, KY. He has also had several solo exhibitions such as "I Named My Baby AC/DC" at the University of Memphis in Memphis, TN, "Drunkard's Hymns" at Southfork in Memphis, TN, "Hundred Proof" at Arkansas Northeastern College in Blytheville, AR, and "Dry County" at the University of Louisiana at Monroe in Monroe, LA. His work resides in the permanent print collection at Arkansas State University and the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Brasher came to Arkansas Northeastern College in 2016 as the Fine Arts Instructor and continues to renovate and advance the Studio Arts program for visual artists in this area.
