Rodrigo (Troito) Troitiño has a Creative and Visual Artist background. Working as Designer and Art Director since 2000 he developed eye for detail. — Thanks to the art-side it’s possible to develop new ‘lines’ using the most different techniques and tools in the most different fields as possible and available.

Since 90’s till today Troito had few different phases using different techniques: Hatching, Stencils, Oil Pastels, Sculptures made with Play-doh, Brushes&Rolls and lately more often Photography.

“Photography is an extension of an unlimited art. — ALSO A TOOL AS A BRUSH for instance.”

Troito's most relevant art project, The Unknowns' Good Feelings, (2014—2016) a ‘one-to-one’ art experience. In this project Troitiño used to talk with unknown people during 20 minutes each, meanwhile he draws inspired by their conversation related to “what is happiness’ from the person’s (unknown’s) point-of-view. It had editions in Barcelona, Brazil, Moscow, Finland, London and also through the Camino de Santiago in Spain. — Check the project here.

Troitiño, brazilian-born, grown up at front of computers and all the fresh stuff from pop-culture going on in the 80’s. By the 90’s Troito started to work for his father in a software development company, when he was 14 he started to design icon for software’s buttons, logotypes and websites. Meanwhile when 17 in high-school he was discovering Oil Pastels. — Here some of his firsts re-painting and own creations back in the late 90’s:

‘The Scream’ by Rodrigo Troitiño — 1997

‘Table’ by Rodrigo Troitiño — 1997

Blue Girl — Rodrigo Troitiño — 1999

Netherlands — 2018 — Rodrigo creates and produce an independent magazine, a booklet with photos that people can cut and have it as print cards. Troi.to - issue 0001, had 300 units printed and stamp-numbered in the size of 13,8x19,2cm. This first edition featured, through 12 pages, some of Troito’s street photography around the Netherlands during 2018. Some of the pictures are followed by poems — Ben Blench, Raphael Gancz and Vanessa Inggs collaborated on this first issue as writers. This non-profitable initiative was distributed to friends and people Troito met around Amsterdam. He also left samples in his favorites cafés and by magazine shops displays.

Acrylics vs. Photography — As Rodrigo keeps developing his art in a broad path of possibilities his photography also keeps developing. The ‘Hope for Happiness’ collection (you probably saw in the front page) were captured by Troito during 2017—2018 when he also created the following acrylic-over-paper pieces.

They are also the result of Troito’s need of seeking for more spontaneous ways of making art. Troitiño ends ups some how ‘merging’ photography and paints resulting on new and imaginative worlds, sometimes photographic, some times starting from blank-white surfaces using brushes and acrylic. The result is lyrical atmospheres, landscapes, trees, animals, portraits, often imaginative, sometimes abstract. It also influenced by artist’s daily sights scenes and landscapes. — You can see bellow some samples of Troito’s 2018 acrylics over paper.


Based in Amsterdam Troito is open for any suitable opportunities in art, creative agencies, in-houses, galleries, etc. Please get in touch for any question. — troitino@gmail.com
