Mesmerising work by animator Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

Sentiment of life caught in mesmerising video

Italian animator and director, Rino Stefano Tagliafierro (1980) work “Beauty” is trying to show the “Sentiment of the painting”. The video released in early January 2014, created by animating masterpieces of Western art. Takes Tagliafierro the viewer into the story they tell on canvas. The video is full of detail and mesmerising flow, which, together with the rich and evocative sound score by Enrico Ascoli, are dipping the viewer in to the historical paintings and their atmosphere.

By using paintings from the Renaissance and all the way through to the end of the 19th century create Tagliafierro a thoughtful meditation on the cycle of human life, and how youth and beauty inevitably give way to death and decay. a ‘Memento Mori’ of our times you can call it. Telling the same story of life and death just as the masters before him.
