One of the most important and influential painters in the city of Vogue is the brilliant, but reclusive human artist named Treilianni. ("TREE-lee-AHN-nee"). Originally from the Drakkellian Alliance, this southerner studied at Ithell, Arkalia and Rukemia before settling in Vogue to begin his illustrious career. Treilianni specializes in oil on canvas and has a very realistic style which emphasizes natural light, realisitic shadows and color. His work is saturated with metaphor and symbolism. It often contains references to his Yntharian beliefs. Now an old man, Treilianni is something of a reclusive celebrity who spends more time turning down dinner invitations than actually painting. His health is declining and this has affected both the quality and quantity of his work over the last several years. His rare public appearances are met with great fanfare and gossiping.
Treilianni has created 750 pieces while in Vogue many of which are considered classics and command high prices. The majority of them are still in the City of Vogue, hanging in various art museums or in the homes of the wealthy. Some of his early pre-Vogue pieces have started to surface and found their way into auctions fetching fabulous prices by certain art collectors.
Over the long years, many of his pieces have been duplicated by aspiring young artists. Recently, some of his “original” works in Vogue have been accused of being forgeries. If they are indeed forgeries, they are very good. Treilianni himself, with failing eyesight and faltering memory, can not tell if they are his own work. Controversy has erupted and has given the social elite of the city something new to gossip about.
Treilianni is an elderly man of slight frame, short thick grey hair, a bushy grey mustache and twinkling grey eyes. His hair is often dusty with the dust from a sculpture, his smock covered in paint drippings. He has a pair of Kalimuran spectacles perched on the end of his nose which help him with his failing eyesight. The left lens is cracked..
Once an arrogant prodigy, then later a celebrity, Treilianni is now a reclusive old man more concerned with creature comforts than stunning the city with his next work. He has lived a full life and grown weary of the gossiping debutants of Vogue's social elite. He nows lives in a large estate. His daughter takes care of him. Those who are closest to him say that he has lost his passion for art and is trying to recapture the fire of his youth. He has taken to nighttime walks, sitting in front of the fire for hours and wandering around the city. Close friends fear he is becoming senile.
Treilianni has dabbled in every art form there is. Art, Drawing, Sculpture, Music, Heraldry, Etiquette
