Paolo Troilo (b.1972, Italy)
Paolo Troilo’s artistic expression characterizes for the originality of the formal procedure. His working instruments are not brushes or palettes, but only his hands: one spreads colors, unfolding at the same time his five fingers, the other holds the mobile phone, which reports the picture of him as the model. Troilus’ painting is predominantly bi-color, based on the use of ivory and “gray payne” or ivory and “green bladder”. This choice gives strength and vigor to every brush stroke. Since 2006, Paolo Troilo took part to Miart, Art Verona and to many group and solo exhibitions.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2011
“In the final gallery, Plato’s Atlantis, is the last fully realised collection that McQueen designed before he died in February 2010 and it’s covered in acrylic tiles to give the idea of a clinical laboratory. And to me it was a collection that in a way summarized all the major themes throughout McQueen’s career; the contrasting opposites of man - machine, nature and technology. The actual collection was streamed live over the internet in a way of trying to create a dialogue between the consumer and the creator. McQueen loved to provoke and loved to provoke you emotionally and I think he did that by tapping into one’s cultural anxieties, or one’s uncertainties, or one’s hopes, or one’s desires.”
This little pine tree is my first and (so far) only tattoo. It was done by the very funny and friendly Terence at No Regrets in Tallahassee, Florida.
I grew up in Wisconsin and this blue spruce pine is a symbol of that.
