About the Artist

Daren Todd is a Portland based creative whose artistic practice focuses on painting, murals and digital design. Daren owns Art Larger Than Me, a fine-art and art merchandise business that supports his creative practice, and works as the curator for The Downstairs Gallery, an art gallery in downtown Portland, Oregon that seeks to provide support for BIPOC, LGBTQ+ artists, and artists with disabilities, and their creative practices. Born out of necessity in 2020, The Downstairs Gallery hosts quarterly art shows and is open to artists of all disciplines, showcasing visual art as its main avenue of expression. Daren’s work currently focuses on abstract expressionism and graphic portraiture, and the juxtaposition of both styles into cohesive paintings and designs.
