Joseph Michael Todorovitch is a contemporary artist, exploring painting through the lens of a naturalist perspective. His paintings search for a breathing sense of space, time, light, and subtle narratives that are personal but that also allow the viewer to ponder and create meaning. Concern for excellence of craftsmanship is balanced with a freedom to explore.
The artist’s draftsmanship was developed in the Los Angeles circuit of ateliers at the turn of the century, and he ultimately ended up at the California Art Institute to study naturalist painting in the wake of Glen Orbik. His work has been collected and exhibited internationally and has been included in numerous publications over the years. Todorovitch proudly holds a William Draper Grand Prize from the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition, and he has taught at the Laguna College of Art & Design (California) for nearly a decade.
Todorovitch is represented by Gallery 1261 (Denver) and Maxwell Alexander Gallery (Los Angeles).
