Todd Schorr-Designed For Extinction Gallery Opening

Todd Schorr was born 1954 in New York City and grew up in Oakland, New Jersey. Playing in bands in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Todd fell under the spell of the psychedelic concert posters coming out of San Francisco and underground comics. While visiting the Uffizi gallery in Italy on a trip to Europe in the summer of 1970, Schorr began to formulate his idea of combining his love of cartoons with the painting techniques of the old masters. 
 His upcoming show, Designed for Extinction, is going to be at Otis College of Art and Design from June 26 -September 11, 2010 at Ben Maltz Gallery. The opening reception takes place Saturday June 26, 4-7pm featuring music by GLUE ONE. Check it out if your in the LA area!
