Todd Williamson (b. 1964 | American) is an American contemporary painter based in Los Angeles. His work is strongly influenced by the abstract expressionist movement 1950s in New York. Williamson’s paintings are characterized by their grid-like parallel lines that reflect a formal consideration of light, color, and shape. Using a refined process of building and removing multiple layers of oil on canvas, his works engage both complementary hues and opposing values, focusing on the subtle layers of color and movement.

In fall 2017, Williamson’s artwork was acquired by the Director of the Brooklyn Museum. The artist is the current winner of the Pollock Prize for Creativity, only the third artist in history to win this coveted prize. His project Processional  was one of twenty official exhibitions at the past 58th Venice Biennale and saw over 100,000 visitors, and was listed by Forbes, Domus, Widewalls, and the Venice Insider as one of the Top 10 exhibitions at the international event.

Williamson has exhibited extensively in both the United States and abroad. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including multiple Pollock Krasner Foundation Award Grants, Best Foreign Artist-Bluduemila Sporte & Arte Italy, two Artslant International Abstract Showcase Awards, and an Artistic Merit Award from Art 1307 Cultural Association in Italy.

Currently, the artist's solo exhibition,  "California Dreamin' an uncertain paradise,'' is on view at the MAC Museum Art & Cars in Singen Germany.  He has upcoming museum exhibitions at the New Museum Los Gatos, MOAH Museum of Art & History, the Cica Museum Korea, and the Museo Villa Seiz Germany.
