Loved By Paolo Troilo

Paolo Troilo paints bodies using his body. A canvas, paint and his hands are all he needs to create his unique large-scale paintings of imagined and surreal bodies, which draw inspiration from the beauty of human anatomy.

Paolo lives and works in Milan, where he left behind an award-winning advertising career to become a painter. From his studio in Milan Paolo creates artwork in a paired-back technique using only paint and his hands. A serendipitous event led Paolo to paint with his hands – a technique which he has realised bestows infinite possibilities on his artistic practice.
