Beauty, a characteristic of an idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure or satisfaction. Under the form of Beauty , and the watchful eyes of Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, 115 classical artworks come to life. Letting us experience the journey from birth to death.
Sometimes, your eyes get fixed on a painting and can’t believe how real it looks. The way the color and the subject is presented, it looks almost as if it is alive, and the only thing you get to say is “beautiful”.
Italian experimental animator and director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro has put in motion that beauty, creating a short film named Beauty, where he brings paintings to life. It is said that art, under the form of a painting, comes to life in the eyes of the beholder.
“The idea of Beauty is born from the desire to convey the main emotions that every person encounters throughout his life path. Classical art has always attracted my most intense emotions, so I decided to “let it” represent them” says Tagliafierro.
From the beginning you hear a sound that lets you know that an impact will take place (stargate fans you can back me up on this). The subtlety of the fog, the sun glare and just the background music it’s just perfect. Rino introduces us in the action that takes place in that picture. The landscapes with that zoom in just made my jaw drop, especially when the birds appear flying in the sky. But in the same time, the darker side of this video gave me the creeps. The darker side, in the ending, we get to experience that part that concludes in death and sacrifice.
Owing to the regulations of a series of important international festivals in which Beauty will take part for a certain period of time the video will not be available in its complete version
