Paolo Troilo 'A head doesn't necessarily need to be a head'

Paolo Troilo, a contemporary artist who was born in Taranto in 1972 but lives and works in Milan.
His artistic expression consists in its originality formal, he doesn't work with a wide variety of techniques and colours, only black and white inks and his fingers.
His works are quite expressive, strong and sometimes dramatic like the attitude of someone pulling down someone's legs as if they were trying to fly - it just depends on the viewpoint - or then a human body where should actually have a nail instead. I admit that some of them freak me out a little bit, after all my eyes are not accustomed to seeing a huge finger where, scientifically, should have a head instead. PLEASE check out this VIDEO!
