Sam Trioli is a contemporary artist, curator, and musician currently living and working in New York City and New Hampshire. Trioli’s work plays with the concepts of abstraction, pop and traditional painting methods. His work explores the simplicity of social abstraction and cognitive association within minimal form, color and structure. The hand of the artist remains hidden behind the concept and foreground of each piece, making process secondary to structured form.
