Born and raised in Paris by fashion designer parents and classical musician grandparents, Chloe Trujillo grew up surrounded by music, beauty, art and design. Fascinated by science, she took a different path. She began studying matter structure and quantum mechanics at university and after graduating was eventually drawn back to the arts. She has enjoyed success as a fine artist, designer and musician.
Chloe creates her complex, layered, deeply saturated artwork with joy and spontaneity. By allowing the text, symbols, colours and composition to flow through her and onto the canvas, she releases herself from preconceived notions and taps into pure creativity.
Inspired by the vast range of human experience along with a deep connection to the spiritual realm, Chloe connects with her audience through the beauty of her visions, the intensity of her soulful emotions and sincerity of her intention. She knows that creating something with passion and purpose infuses it with that energy. Her goal is to inspire, awaken, touch and uplift others with her work.Her creations have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Paris, Los Angeles, New York City, Vancouver, Berlin and San Francisco.
Inspired by music since childhood, Chloe spent years performing in underground death-metal and punk bands, cabaret acts, rock operas and Off-Broadway musicals. Eventually, she began acknowledging and documenting the original lyrics and melodies that flowed through her while painting, driving and in her day-to-day life, developing her own style of gypsy-punk-blues-metal rock. She opened for Missing Persons in summer 2015 and is currently finishing her first solo album.
With her very long hair (she never had it cut since she was born), Chloe always uses scarves as a way to create art. Some have called her hair styles a living, ever-evolving sculpture! So what better way to translate her spiritual visions exploration onto beautiful, mystical and colorful silk scarves? And that’s how her eponymous line was born, securing Colette in Paris as her first international concept store.
Continuously growing, her line has now expanded to high-end handbags as well as women’s pret-a-porter collection which she successfully presented at New York Fashion week in February of 2016.
Chloe lives in Los Angeles with her husband, the musician Robert Trujillo, and their two children. She balances her time between art, music, fashion and family, always excited for the new opportunities each project brings.
