We simply had to share ‘Beauty’, a truly stunning animated video by Italian animator and director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro. Released in early January 2014, the video created by animating masterpieces of Western art (namely paintings from the Renaissance and subsequent eras all the way through to the end of the 19th century), is a thoughtful meditation on the cycle of human life, and how youth and beauty inevitably give way to death and decay. In what could be described as a ‘Memento Mori’ of our times, Tagliafierro’s video tells the same story of life and death just as the Masters that have come before him, this time through the use of digital animation.


 

Tagliafierro’s animations are full of realistic detail and mesmerising flow, which, together with the rich and evocative sound score by Enrico Ascoli, immerse the viewer into the historical paintings and their ambience. As we now live in a culture that depends to such a large extent on the moving image (for everything from entertainment to learning), recreating these paintings into digital moving canvases breathes a new life into them, rendering them more relatable to the present-day viewer. The fact that all the paintings featured in the film have also been released by Tagliafierro as animated GIF images, further accentuates the fact that this is a truly contemporary artistic project, deeply rooted in our image-sharing social-media culture.

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro (1980) is an Italian experimental animator and director based in Milan. His output includes music videos (for artists such as Four Tet, Stumbleine, Digitalism, Mobbing, M+A and ORAX) and fashion videos (Antonio Marras, Kenzo). In addition to collaborating with teams and video artists creating interactive video projections for exhibitions, museums and special events, he has participated in many festivals and competitions, and has received numerous international awards in recognition of his work.
