Raised in Paris by fashion designer parents and an opera singer grandfather, 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 but eventually was 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, colors, 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 vision, sensitivity of her spirit and sincerity of her intention. She knows that when she creates something with love and excitement it is infused with that energy. Her goal is to inspire and uplift others with her work. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Paris, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Chloe’s fashion brand was born when she translated her artwork onto her favorite accessory – silk scarves. Her scarves are made in Italy with silk from Lake Como and fine “voile de cotton.” She selects elements and symbols from each of her paintings to create each scarf. Finished with hand-rolled stitching, each scarf is unique and precious, a meaningful work of art itself. Colette in Paris was first to carry Chloe’s scarves and they can now be found at exclusive boutiques including Bacci’s in Vancouver, Smets in Luxembourg, Jades in Düsseldorf, Joan Shepp in Philadelphia, and Lola K in Monte Carlo.
Inspired by music, as well as art, since childhood, Chloe spent years performing in bands, cabaret acts, rock operas and off-Broadway. She continues to write and record, and collaborate with some of music’s most influential composers and performers, and she is currently completing her first solo album.
Chloe lives in Los Angeles with her husband, musician Robert Trujillo, and their two children. She balances her time between art, music and fashion, infusing each piece and project with the love and excitement she feels while creating.
