About the artist:
Efisio is known as The Rebel Painter; This innovative, skilled artist sees the act of creativity as a fight for every moment. He expresses this violence, this tear “on the canvas of his ego” as he puts it. Caesar’s friend and pupil Helene Marion, Efisio describes himself as a rebel, an artist who never wanted to be formatted, who lives with his painting as with the most demanding mistresses.
Portrait of a man with incredible destiny, driven by his art, to whom he gives up the smallest portion of its Essence.
“Each painting is a struggle” says the artist. The monumental canvases Efisio deal with themes that has the most to represent heart: the chaos, neurosis, light. Each painting is a new birth which is sometimes in pain, a rebirth, a new freedom. It is the fear of death that transcends his art, “I win the fight or canvas completes me” he says. The Efisio painting is the result of a visceral work, deep thinking, dreams that can wake up at night and summon him to paint right away, sometimes for whole days without taking time do something else. A unique style he cultivated from an early age. At just 4 years old, Efisio lived for color, and this has not changed. It has a vital need. For him, the strength of the color merges with that of the earth. He loves women as he wants, with a vibrant passion for life that he cherishes. It is a trait Efisio learned from great teachers who became friends, much more than simply their students. They have supported and pushed to paint again and again, without being influenced by a current or institution: “I am a rebel, I never wanted to be formatted, I try to convey in my art humanity who goes slowly, an emotion beyond restraint. ”
Efisio carries huge canvases with different techniques: painting knife, brush, brush, building, by hand. He has directed more than 700 works and also worked sculpture. He knows also that he will return to sculpt: “I expect that the substance of the fabric for my aging hands can sculpt. This is erotic. “His painting The City of Clouds is the link between art and love: “When a man is in wandering, he seeks his feminine side, Love. When he starts to love a city so he can find a woman. ”
