Artist C.V.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Todd Lawson’s artwork has graced many international commercial projects and has been displayed in art galleries throughout North America; including Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto, Utah, Vancouver and the UK. Born in Canada, Todd grew up in Southern and Central Florida. After a turbulent youth built loud angry music, sketchbooks, skateboarding and friends he left the south to return to Canada where he attended Sheridan College’s Illustration and Post-Graduate Illustration programs. He currently lives in Burlington, Ontario with his wife; fellow artist Elesavet and two twin daughters.

ARTIST STATEMENT: Todd’s artwork explores the similar visual aesthetics and complex narratives he grew up admiring, pulling roots from folk art, surrealism, pop art and low brow, while helping him to create paintings and dimensional work that tends to pull very strong influences from Americana’s past; comic books, cartoons, science fiction, pulp art, fantasy, classic toys and retro paranoid advertising. Always symbolic and often surreal, the work juggles story telling within a staged setting with emotional and sometimes awkward personal statements expressed through the various figurative characters who populate his worlds.
