Joseph Todorovitch, 1978 | Figurative painter


American painter Joseph Michael Todorovitch was born in San Gabriel, California.
This artist was inspired as a child by his grandmother, and has enjoyed the creative process as long as he can remember.
Realizing art is life, he aggressively began to study drawing as a high school student, and then attended Cal State University Fullerton where he received his bachelor degree in fine art.


During this time Joseph also studied at various southern California art schools and developed a great respect for sound draftsmanship and traditional painting.
As he studied art history, he was greatly inspired by the painters of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Also drawn to the work of contemporary masters, Joseph has continued to be heavily influenced by their naturalistic style.

Determined to record his experiences through highly representational art, he enrolled at the California Art Institute.
It was here that he would begin to refine his opinions about painting and develop sensitivity to his particular taste.
Compelled to paint the human figure, Joseph’s work reflects his perceptions of people and their environment, attempting to show the viewer excerpts of the lives of his subjects, moments in time that describe subtle emotional states and beautiful lighting.


A student of the California Art Institute, Joseph has recently been invited to become an instructor at the school.
Additionally, he has won several first place awards at multiple juried exhibitions, and has been a featured museum artist.
Joseph is represented exclusively by Wendt Gallery in Laguna Beach, California.

Il pittore Americano Joseph Michael Todorovitch è nato a San Gabriel, in California.
L'artista è stato ispirato da sua nonna da bambino e ha apprezzato il processo creativo da quando ha memoria.
Rendendosi conto che l'arte è vita, iniziò in modo aggressivo a studiare disegno come studente delle scuole superiori, per poi frequentare la Cal State University Fullerton dove conseguì la laurea in belle arti.
Durante questo periodo Joseph studiò anche in varie scuole d'arte della California meridionale e sviluppò un grande rispetto per il buon disegno e la pittura tradizionale.


Mentre studiava storia dell'arte, è stato fortemente ispirato dai pittori del XIX e XX secolo.
Attratto anche dal lavoro dei maestri contemporanei, Joseph ha continuato a essere fortemente influenzato dal loro stile naturalistico.
Determinato a registrare le sue esperienze attraverso un'arte altamente rappresentativa, si iscrisse al California Art Institute.


Fu qui che iniziò ad affinare le sue opinioni sulla pittura ed a sviluppare la sensibilità verso il suo gusto particolare.
Costretto a dipingere la figura umana, il lavoro di Joseph riflette la sua percezione delle persone e del loro ambiente, tentando di mostrare allo spettatore estratti della vita dei suoi soggetti, momenti nel tempo che descrivono sottili stati emotivi ed una bella illuminazione.
