Bryce McCloud


Isle of Printing

Nashville, TN

Found on a misty morning in 1997 swaddled in a bespoke hand printed paper suit, Bryce has sought to do his family and uncle proud by manufacturing novelty letterpress ephemera and inflicting public art mayhem on the largest possible audience allowed by the laws of nature. He is closely associated with Isle of Printing the shop he founded in 1997 with the international magnate Hiram Kneesch in Nashville, Tennessee. He has used this combination letterpress print shop and public art generator to create novel works of art in the public and private spheres for nearly 20 years both locally and abroad. Working with Third Man Records Bryce has been involved in a Grammy award-winning project The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records. In 2011 he worked in residency at the homeless shelter Room in the Inn. This led to the creation of the public art project Our Town Nashville, a city wide event that has spanned 3 years and involved thousands of Nashvillians to help create a collective portrait of the city of with support from the Nashville Metro Arts commission. His large-scale installations can be seen in several prominent locations around Nashville and have been featured internationally. Renaming the shop's neighborhood Pie Town in 2014 – he is currently working on creating a place for unconventional community minded fine art to flourish in our city.
