Like many kids raised in the 1970s, Mark Todd was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, its neon and glitz looming over the city.
Mark shows an ever deepening interest in deconstructing comic art from his childhood. Over the years his works seem to be getting more abstracted allowing more of a true collaboration with his idols Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. His faux naive style reveals an understanding not just of the power of comic book iconography, but of the nature of memory. He’s shown in museums and galleries worldwide, and he is now bringing his unique take on comic heroes to Earth To Kentucky.
Mark lives in Southern California with his wife and fellow artist, Esther Pearl Watson and their daughter Lili, an avid artist herself. Todd also co-teaches with Esther at Art Center College of Design, contributes to the curatorial program at Pasadena’s Sp[a]cE Gallery inside the Ayzenberg Group, and co-manages Joshua Tree’s Hey There Projects with fellow artist and Art Center Chair, Aaron Smith.
