Mark Todd deconstructs comic book iconography in his 4th solo exhibition, Covered, at La Luz de Jesus gallery. Covered showcases Mark’s unique spin on the first appearances and origin stories of the superheroes that populate Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
Like many kids raised in the 70’s, Mark 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, it’s neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and Mr. Pickles, a lovely French Bulldog.
Detailed show statement and full preview forthcoming.
