Author(s): Schorr Todd
Schorr's formative years were spent in a world surrounded by the atomic and space ages, by Saturday morning cartoons and racks of comic books at the local drugstore, a land populated by Revell models, Mad Magazine, Testors glue, Mickey Mouse and Rat Fink. The compulsion to replicate these characters led to a formal art education and exposure to a new set of influences drawn from the world of advertising and commercial art. Dreamland is a collection of Schorr's best work to date. From 'lowbrow art' beginnings, new school of fine art has emerged.
Todd Schorr calls his painting style "cartoon realism." He began a successful professional career as a commercial illustrator, but scon left illustration behind to express his visions on large-scale canvasses.
