Jon Todd’s “Trophy”

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Continuing his exploration of underground sub-cultures and themes of social unrest, Canadian artist Jon Todd recently opened a new solo exhibition, ‘Trophy’ at Smash Gallery. The mixed media works reveal his intriguing synthesis of Mexican, Northern European, Japanese and tattoo cultures within the scope of lone, dark haired figures engaging in ritual acts or brazenly confronting the viewer beneath elaborately patterned masks. Take a peek at the new work and opening night photos below.
