Marco Tirelli Exhibit Displays Expert Craftsmanship

Posted: Oct. 18th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Giorgio Benni/Museo d'Arte...

Marco Tirelli's artwork might be difficult to place into any specific category, but that doesn't stop the work from being gorgeous additions to the art world. One of the most impressive aspects of his work being exhibited in Rome is that since the pieces dry quickly they are difficult to modify, making Tirelli's precise artwork that much more intriguing.

Marco Tirelli lived the life of an artist from an early age. He grew up surrounded by the children of visiting scholars and artists at the Swiss Institute in Rome, where his father was the manager. The family lived in an apartment in the Institute’s grand 19th-century Villa Maraini and, in view of his precocious talents as a draftsman, the aspiring artist was assigned a studio of his own there at the age of 15.

Now 56, Mr. Tirelli said that living in the villa with its surrounding gardens was like being brought up in a time warp, in an oasis of old-world tranquillity near the Via Veneto, the epicenter in the early 1960s of the flamboyant and rackety lifestyle depicted in Federico Fellini’s film “La Dolce Vita.”
