Born in Michigan and raised in Connecticut, Todd has surrounded his life with art from an early age. Mostly self taught, he has taken a background in music and transcribed his creations across the media platform. Focusing now on visual arts, Todd has begun the long road to establishing himself as a professional artist. Now residing in Massachusetts, Todd’s art is a study of urban living. He works with found objects, anything from paper to broken electronics, and different techniques employed by many street artists. His works are an attempt to translate and capture moments of urban life. Todd gains inspiration from the normality of everyday, looking for those simple connections that hold us all together.Todd Robertson lives and works in Boston, MA.Todd’s ideas are summed up in the following statement, “My works are heavily influenced and developed from my music background. I try to relate my compositions to improvisational jazz. Starting with a only a basic frame work, my creations take shape through the influence of my daily life and the found objects I incorporate into them. Each piece that I find comes with a past and story all of its own. These pieces are a direct reflection of the community I dilute myself in. Rather than recreation, using these real objects the viewer has an instantaneous connection and understanding to the art. This technique allows my art to be a kind of stepping stone in and out of what every abstract environment I wish to create. Trying to keep in touch with normality and focusing on what connects us together, I hope to inspire and provoke the human spirit.”
