Todd, known by his pseudonym, LOUDLABS, was born in Los Angeles, California. In 1994, LOUDLABS began his artistic career by exploring his vision through written form. Yet, after much work, LOUDLABS realized that his story could be better told through artwork. He began by using pens and markers on canvas, and eventually moved on to brush and paint. Finally, he settled on stenciling. He combines loud colors with raw canvases, tiles, wood panels, walls and clothing to bring his work to life in the very same city that influenced his style and rattled his imagination. His story reads like a cryptic comic complete with hidden codes and meanings. “It’s a map with a lot of twist and turns,” Todd says.
