Artist Todd Schorr (born 1954) began his career as a professional illustrator in New York City, creating album covers, movie posters, and magazine covers for clients like AC/DC, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, and Time magazine.

In the mid-eighties, he took a break from illustration to focus on fine art and has since earned broad recognition as a master painter. The style and influences of his complex narrative painting are attributed to a multitude of sources, ranging from Northern Renaissance to 18th- and 19th-century Romantic painters, combined with contemporary imagery and an illustrative style.

Todd Schorr: Atomic Cocktail was organized by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Virginia Beach.
