About the Artist:
Jon Todd is a Toronto based mixed media artist. Todd combines many mediums in his art including painting on found objects, collaging various papers, wood block cuts and screen-printing. His artistic process involves layering various mediums coupled with distressing techniques. It is this process that gives his art a unique style and places his work in the grey area between raw beauty and refined chaos.
Todd’s unique style of paintings can vary from hyper detailed elaborate portraits to bold and intense collage pieces. All his works are adorned with intricate symbolic images and patterns that allow the viewer to decipher the story behind the painting and its characters.
Todd continues to push the boundaries of his art through continuous research and experimentation with new techniques and styles.
