Rino Stefano Tagliafierro is an Italian experimental animator and director based in Milan. His output includes music videos and fashion videos. 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. Recently he has created a truly stunning animated video, titled “Beauty,” a series of moving masterpieces. Released in early January 2014, the video created by animating masterpieces of Western art is a thoughtful meditation on the cycle of human life. From the Renaissance and subsequent eras all the way through to the end of the 19th century, the once frozen moments are imagined as unfixed landscapes, animating the figure’s faces and movements within them through digital manipulation. Rino breathed a new life into them, rendering them more relatable to the present-day viewer.
