Marc Todd was born and raised in the South West of England, before leaving to study fine art in London.
He defines his style as Contemporary Impressionism, working with colour and light, textures and marks to create dynamic and engaging images that are truly distinctive.
This treatment of paint is used to create the vibrant tree-scapes and cityscapes for which he is now gaining an international reputation.
Despite appearing to be very different subject matters, Marc finds great synergy between the two.
When you look really closely a tree scape, in reality everything is moving. Leaves rustle, grass sways, birds fly past, bees buzz in this way, I see it in similar terms to the busiest of cities. I use the same techniques across both subjects marks and strokes that are designed to communicate this sense of constant movement in the environment
His signature style is a vivacious use of colour and subtle application of texture. Marc has developed a range of modern techniques to apply the paint with unique instruments, such as sponges, plywood and even lego. With brushes rarely used, his stunning originals capture the fast pace of city life and the natural movement of the forest.
