Troy Paiva

Teaches at Yaymaker

A peninsula townie, Troy was that kid that sat in the back of English class in high school drawing cars and planes. In his 20s he worked as a graphic designer, eventually stumbling into a product design gig at Galoob Toys in SSF. This frantic, sink or swim, art/design studio environment was his trial by fire, the place he learned to paint fast. Troy is also an accomplished Fine Art night photographer. His colorful and surreal images, shot in abandoned sites and junkyards all over the American West, have appeared in numerous US and EU galleries, and publications. Troy's Paint Nite technique is laid back and playfull. He will be keeping it weird!
