Todd Baxter was born in Washington DC and grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. With a background in drawing, painting & mixed media, he now works in both fine art and commercial photography. Baxter’s process of digital compositing, allows him to take elements from various places and scenes and seamlessly blends them together to create his own fantastical worlds, in great and mesmerizing detail. Baxter now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
Both his father and grandfather worked in the Space Program and would tell him stories about working on nuclear rockets that could have sent humans to Mars but was subsequently shut down.
These memories were the inspiration for the Astoria series, now on view at Strange Matter through January 2016.
