Preview: Jon Todd at Yves Laroche Galerie D’Art

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Canadian artist Jon Todd paints portraits of hardened characters with an expressionistic approach, softening the rigidness of their tattoos and tense expressions with soft brushstrokes. Elements of Mexican, Asian and European folk art find their way into his work, but these influences are filtered through a prismatic, structured painting style. Todd will be featured in a two-person exhibition opening on June 8 with Jesse Hazelip titled “Butcher’s Hook” at Yves Laroche Galerie D’Art in Montreal. Take a look at some of his latest paintings below.
