Todd Schorr's artistic journey is one that hardly conforms to the time-honored stereotype of Bohemian artist. It is rather a post-war tale bracketed by an America infatuated with the limitless potential of consumerism. His formative years were spent in a world surrounded by the atomic and space ages, by Saturday morning cartoons and racks of comic books at the local drug store, a land populated by Revell models, Mad Magazine, Testors glue, Mickey Mouse and Rat Fink.

Further fueling his developing image bank were the seemingly endless icons from television's early years: Robbie the Robot, Mighty Joe Young and reel upon reel of animated toons from the likes of Tex Avery, George Pal and Max Fleischer The compulsion to replicate these characters led to a formal art education and exposure to a new set of influences drawn from the world of advertising and commercial art.

Schorr received his degree from The Philadelphia College of Art.  His mid-career retrospective was held at The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, Florida in 2002, and a solo exhibition at The San Jose Museum of Art is slated for September, 2008.  His work is featured in the full-length documentary film, The Treasures of Long Gone John. Todd’s most recent monograph is Dreamland, 2004, published by Last Gasp Press.  The artist currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
