Dramatic Finger Paintings by Paolo Troilo


Italian artist Paolo Troilo doesn’t use paint brushes to create these amazing and powerful artworks. Instead of paintbrush he dips his fingertips in black and white paint and guides them across the canvas.

Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don’t apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn’t find any brushes.
