Fabrizio Trotta

Fabrizio Trotta was born in Paola in 1973, in Calabria, where he currently lives and works after a long musical and artistic experience in Milan.
He is a self-taught artist, while in his Milanese years he gained a diploma in Sound Engineering in 1994 and a university degree in Computer Science in 2001.
Since his adolescence, a rich sensitivity, along with an evident passion for communication and open and sincere debate, led him to show a specific interest in art and in its different ways of expression.
His natural attraction for life and its colors similarly drove him to explore the wonderful world of contemporary painting. This led him to a wider and inner research that enhanced his creativity, embracing different styles and techniques. He then felt a strong and uncontrollable need to reconcile, in his work, the spiritual and conceptual side with the more tangible one of life, leading him to create textural and relief surfaces.
For years he significantly undertook, with fervor, such activity of musical composer, arranger and producer, with some of his productions released by record companies such as EMI and BMG. However, this especially gave him the right training to interpret the sound vibrations that he later converted in visual vibrations in his paintings.
In his quest for consecration of what is, in fact, his other great passion, Fabrizio Trotta modulates musical rhythms with many materials e textures that become sound and harmony in the shade of colours. He subsequently includes, in a precise framework, instruments, musical scores and LPs. They become evidence and story… a tale of emotions with a strong desire to reveal them.
His predilection for the materials and the colour, and his wish to involve the use of all our senses, including olfaction, took him to widen his artistic research to minimal paintings, realized with oil, pigments or spices. In this artworks, called “Chromotherapy” and “Chromoaromatherapy”, the colour, in his therapeutic and cathartic function, becomes the unique protagonist being represented as “material rain” through the new and original painting technique called “Spectrogram”, that reproduces on canvas a 3D spectrogram.
After he met public approval in Italy and abroad, and with his works featuring in private and public collections, he creates the “Playing Art” in 2008. This is a new concept of a pictorial, dynamic, interactive and subtly playful art, whose potential is closely linked to the possibility of interaction and intervention by the owner/observer on the painting itself, by freely displacing magnetized sections of musical instruments over the painted and textured ground on canvas. It allows everyone to create, each time, a different and unique work.
His paintings are published in contemporary art volumes and yearbooks, and in specialized magazines.
