Todd Severson (American)
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany
Todd Severson creates artworks from wood panels that are prepared by building up layers and layers of industrial car paint on their surfaces. He then draws delicately into them with a chainsaw, revealing the multi-colored edges within the marks. His subject designs tend toward iconic presentations of flowers, cars and even neuron patterns.
Todd Severson’s life experiences include time spent in various locations in the United States, Nova Scotia, London, and both Hamburg and Berlin, Germany. He has an active international exhibition record.
