HELLO!

I'm a visual artist, photographer, art director and designer based in Amsterdam.

I have this art-thing going on aside of my career in advertisement since ever. I used to have often exhibitions, now having a break of it and reorganising ideas and producing some more like 'limited' pieces.

Biography:

Rodrigo (Troito) Troitiño Salvator,

37 year old, Brazilian-born Visual Artist and Art Director based in Amsterdam.

Rodrigo Troitiño (Troito), 37years old, is a Visual Artist and Art Director, Brazilian-born Brazil, has lived in London, Barcelona, US and Brasil now based in Amsterdam NL.

Troito's iconic art project, The Unknowns' Good Feelings, had editions in Barcelona, Brazil, Moscow, Åland (Finland), Londres and walking by the Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago) - Spain.

In this project Troitiño talks with unknown people during 20 minutes each, meanwhile, he draws inspired by the conversation.

Troitiño art's aspiration goes to the opposite direction of the shocking contemporary sort of art.  Besides of shocking and criticizing he provides a fountain of good feelings to the observer or owner of piece.

 

My art pieces should be seen as ‘fountains’ of good energy where people can ‘drink’ from them as much as they feel like. To reach this goal I tease the audience’s mood using not only bright colors but also peculiar scenes often exploring movement, expression and light. You will often see characters jumping, or dancing, or simply floating, or all these in the same time - moments of pure joyful excitement.

My process outputs are artworks that contains bits of surrealism. expressionism and pop-art.

As technique I often use ink over paper for drawings with a personal hatching style, for paintings I use a technique that I created myself when I was crafting my first exhibition back in 2006, it uses acrylics, stencils and paint rollers over canvas or recycling wood.

Lately I’m also exploring sculpture-molding on play-doh and photography.
