ARTIST BIO

TROG is an Australian-born artist known for his highly acclaimed underground stoner comix and his Wasted canvas collection. During his twenty-two-year career, TROG has penned a multitude of celebrity, music, and alternative lifestyle brand artwork, and he has created more 420 event posters than any other artist in the world.

TROG's cult following spans across forty-five countries, and his trippy cannabis inspired artwork is admired by high-profile musicians, celebrities, 420 event founders, cannabis activists, and loyal fans. The vibrant intensity of TROG's art takes hold like a psychedelic high, sending people on a visual hallucinogenic head trip into a wacky world of stoner toons.

TROG creates thought provocative art that comes to life, stimulates the mind in a profound way, and connects with stoners. TROG explains, When you're stoned all those things you imagine in your head, I'm the guy who brings those to life. They are pouring out of my hand onto the canvas. One of the greatest Rock-n-Roll art directors of all time, Ernie Cefalu explains TROG's Revolutionary style, Today, because of his unique perspective the new frontier is owned by TROG! Just like Steve Jobs, TROG's art takes the best of what was and elevates it to a whole new level.

In 2014, TROG launched a clothing label called Smelly Clothing Co. that features cool pieces from his extraordinary art collection. Famous musicians and celebrities wear the Smelly Clothing line. TROG is the author of The Cooked Book and The Killer Weed Coloring Book: For Marijuana Lovers. His art is licensed on various merchandise and new product lines will hit the market in 2018.

With the current conditions of cannabis laws changing worldwide on prohibition, TROG is one of the top artists designing posters for the 420 and 710 events that are helping change the new frontier. In years to come, TROG's art will still be relevant and significant as a visual history of the long journey to legalize marijuana. TROG will be remembered as the key cannabis culture artist during the period when cannabis prohibition ended.
