Phillip Trujillo is an artist painting in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His informal training began at the age of 8 when his father sat him in front of his easel and asked him to paint whatever he wanted in oils.

Since the age of 8, he has painted landscapes, traditional Retablos and many pop culture subjects. His love of Star Wars began his journey into portrait painting where he has found his true passion.

He has not had the privilege of formal training, but has created his own path with studying the masters in text, many visits to the Getty in Los Angeles, the advice of his mentors, and hours upon hours of practice. He makes an effort to paint or draw on a daily basis.

His day job as an assistant film editor in Los Angeles has provided the supplies needed on his journey and some inspiration in his pop culture pieces.

Thank you for sharing a leg of the journey with him.
