Trotta was born in Paola in 1973, in Calabria, where he currently
lives and works after a long musical and artistic experience
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
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
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"
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.
