With meticulous attention to composition, texture, depth, layers, and colour palette and countenance of Tarogrammains skin, Cifielli’s canvases eloquently narrate the quotidian experiences of Tarogramma’s residents, ranging from intimate portraiture to depictions of everyday happenings like café visits to Football match days, bypassing traditional muses and themes; Cifielli’s oeuvre is an audacious venture into conceptual world-building as an artist, wherein he becomes the sole guardian of its narratives and relics. Cifielli emerges as an artist, one whose work demands unwavering observation.
