FAVOURITE PIQUADRO COLLECTION:
Paolo takes us by the hand in search of himself and his art. He has been working as an art director in Milan for years, but his true journey started much earlier, as a child. He has been painting since he was six years old. He has always painted with his hands, using them as if they were brushes to lay the acrylics on the canvas. Today he goes from one one-man show to the next, and his journey continues with the Piquadro Creative Line.
Creative is Italian style, craftsmanship, tailoring. The refinement of handmade products and the street soul of camouflage. The dynamism of the textures and the physicalness of the finishes. Like the creation of a painting, the materials, the colours and the shades breathe life into a selection of refined and elegant products. Design and creativity paint a personal style that leaves its mark. Paolo Troilo interprets it as if it were a journey.
I am a colourful image in black and white. My work says everything about me, because I am my work and my work is who I am. My career path is a trip between a number of meetings and places that have changed my existence. I have travelled to many continents of life: from a study totally focussed on image, which turned into a job in communications, to then move to the other side of the world and broaden in the sea of creativity through painting. In my work, the best travel companions are the tools that I abandoned when I started painting with my fingers; memories, which I hold as if they were 3D objects; the teachings of those who led me to do what I am doing. When I travel, I always carry a large number of spare eyes in my suitcase so I can look at the places with an ever-changing point of view. Returning home, for me, means the voices of children, hugs, warmth, and finding the serenity of the lull. The trips I best remember are those with my father and those I took before starting to paint. They lead me to build my ideas, my art.
“in addition to the physical journey, it is important to enjoy the inner journey”
