BIO


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, and it is this pairing that gives his art a unique style. Todd’s recent works are of contemporary portraitures whose bodies are adorned with intricate symbolic images. These images provide the viewer the means to decipher the character’s life story. The result is a contrasting blend of rawness and refined beauty.
