Todd Conway's picture
I'm an art teaher with 24 years of service with the Baltimore City Schools and currently teach for Baltimore County Schools . When I'm not teaching art, I spend time with art, gardening and landscaping.  I like to fabercate images using found objects. Often I gather things  off the ground to use in my art.  Like pieces of a puzzle, I blend and connect objects together to shape the final image. Each part is connected together very securely with surgical precision.  I noticed that... more

Pabst and Crabs and Pabst Dream

This painting is the national art award winner for the Pabst Blue Ribbon art contest. This image is 1 of 2 artworks that I did for Pabst. This image won and was printed on metal. There were so many reproductions of this image, that I walked in a beer store- at random, and saw it in Alaska. They are collector items. The other is titled "Pabst Dream". This too, has been published and printed on many things including a building as seen in one of the photos.

Pabst Blue Ribbon Recycled Art

The was part of a Pabst Blue Ribbon promotion. Found objects are used to shape the image. Spoons, metal, glass and whatever I could find I used in this piece.

My Art Studio in Canton

This is where I live and work. I re designed, cut in half, rebuilt and painted this mural while living in it and working as the art teacher at Digital Harbor High School. Much of the materials for making of this project were invented by me ( for example: I created a process to make hardwood floor stain using oil paint and a stain processing system made of discarded lab equipment.) The railing, kitchen cabinets and a slider trap door that transforms in a bar stool are inside. I built large windows and glass block to capture the sun which grow herbs in the kitchen. Green Technology...sort of. An urban garden grows along the side of the house which is showcased by the mural and is the subject of much positive interest by the community.

Coffee Buzz

The objects I use are organized in boxes based on each object’s hue (yes…I know… OCD-right? lol). This system of making the color gamut works the same way an artist uses a paint palette. Each object is connected together securely with great surgical precision. This picture is made from dolls, lighters, wires, toys, metal and so on. What kind objects can you find in this picture?
