Three influential artists come together to form Troika. Individually, they have had successful careers in the arts and throughout the last ten years have frequently come together to collaborate on projects devised around their passion for music, film and contemporary culture. Together, they offer exciting and dynamic collection of paintings that give us an exclusive insight to their talents in street art, illustration and mixed media painting techniques.

Each Member of Troika has taken a different path to lead them here. They have taken part in fine art and illustration degrees as well as working in tattoo design, and have worked closely with clients ranging from the BBC and the Home Office to Apple, Google and Glastonbury Festival. Their history has also embraced film direction, musical composition, community art projects and university lecturing, and they are all committed to philanthropic work which has made an impact in a number of settings.

They work together on each piece in their studio they call ‘The Bunker’. They think of their approach to art as a band would, sometimes one member takes the lead but they all create the art together. Many of the references you see in their paintings are inspired by graffiti or street art that they have captured whilst exploring cities around the world.

They begin each painting by preparing stencils and patterns which they create digitally and then work on by hand. They then build up the canvas layer by layer using mixed media and painted mediums that are inspired by the Far East and urban graphics, including spray paints, inks, acrylics and oils, and layer the stencils to create the image, often placing a figurative element as the final step. Troika have worked with Miyagi Restaurants and of their many commissions, their most memorable was painting Steven Gerrard’s Football boots.
