MARCO TIRELLI

Biography

Marco Tirelli was born in Rome in 1956, he lives and works between Rome and Spoleto. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts graduating in scenography with Toti Scialoja and began to exhibit his works at the beginning of the ’80s, searching for a link between the European abstract culture and the Italian metaphysical tradition. In 1982 Achille Bonito Oliva listed name among the artists featured in the book “Transavanguardia Internazionale. La mostra Ateliers”, exhibition presented at the former Pastificio Cerere in the Roman district of San Lorenzo, which marked the birth of the group of the “New Roman school” composed by Marco Tirelli, Nunzio, Piero Pizzi Cannella, Bruno Ceccobelli and Giuseppe Gallo. Marco Tirelli’s painting is the result of an intellectual process that, starting from the recording of real information, comes to distill pure forms and allusions to imaginary places. The form always remains poised between recognizability and abstraction, while light and shadow mark the mysterious experience of perception limits.

Marco Tirelli has been exhibiting his works in important international institutions, among the personal shows: Palazzi Comunali, Todi (2017), MAMC, Saint-Etienne Métropole (2016), Fondazione Pescheria-Centro Arti Visive, Pesaro (2014), Auditorium Parco della Musica, Rome and National Institute for Graphics, Rome (2013), MACRO Testaccio, Rome and Pinacoteca Nazionale, Bologna (2012), Palazzo Fortuny, Venice (2010), Gori Collection/Fattoria di Celle, Pistoia (2009), Casa del Cinema, Rome (2007), Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Bologna (2003), Institut Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt (2002), Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Turin (1998), Galleria Civica, Modena (1992, 1990), American Academy, Rome (1990).
