Joseph Todorovitch is a true artist. He is always learning and growing—and still taking the occasional workshop from other artists—with the goal of making compositions that are about paint application and craftsmanship.

Because of that, Todorovitch’s artwork allows viewers to be active participants and find their own meaning from the imagery.
