ABOUT THE ARTIST
None of the stereotypes that come to mind when you hear the word “artist” fit Todd Dawes. Like his artwork, there is nothing canned or cookie cutter about him. He’s self-taught and began drawing before he could read & write. (He learned to read at age 13, but that’s a different story) As a child, he enjoyed playing sports and drawing his favorite players. Not much has changed since then. Without the Rochester ice for hockey, today Todd mixes it up playing soccer in the scorching Florida heat. His life-long sports experience enables him, like no other, to capture the dynamic details & intensity of competition. The subject of his newest collection of original art is the beauty of international football. Todd brings his unique and creative perspective of color, mascot development to the storied traditions of soccer’s most powerful national teams. A creative blend of technical drawing skills and a traditional painting style make these paintings refreshing and original. Now available of apparel, accessories, gift items and fine art reproductions.
