Marco Cianfanelli

Prominent artist Marco Cianfanelli chats about his relationship with art, and addresses what it means to be an artist.

Marco Cianfanelli is a world-renowned artist that’s known for his bold public art pieces and large scale sculptural works. He was born in Johannesburg in 1970 and graduated with a distinction in Fine Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand in 1992.

Cianfanelli has had several solo exhibitions, and was a member of the design team for South Africa’s national monument, the Freedom Park.

Cianfanelli says that there are certain circles that know his name, and with the certain works he has done, its brought a lot of attention.

Things are changing all the time and in the last 5 or 6 years, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve been doing a lot of work outside of South Africa and I sometimes wonder do people know what I am doing.

Marco Cianfanelli, world-renowned artist

Cianfanelli says that in the South African art circles, people are looking at specific platforms to see what other people are doing. Cianfanelli admits that he has been doing a lot of work outside of that, and addresses the need to establish what it means to be an artist.

There’s the bigger question of what it means to be an artist? I think that all artists struggle to define that says Cianfanelli

If you look at people it feels like some artists have adopted the persona or the identity of an artist’s very comfortably - I never adopted it very comfortably.

Marco Cianfanelli, world-renowned artist

Cianfanelli has won numerous awards including the ABSA L’Atelier and Ampersand Fellowship. He's currently working on projects in Detroit and Chicago, and his artworks can be found in public and private collections all around South Africa
