Orfeo Tagiuri: Little Passing Thoughts
Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi (Ed.)
Chose Commune, 2023
Orfeo Tagiuri scribbles day and night on a small notebook. He tears away some of the drawings, to throw in the bin because they’re not good enough, to give away to friends — to have a laugh or to remember a moment — or to sell to a stranger who shared the exact same feeling or thought, for what Orfeo draws with a black pen are universal emotions. This pocket-sized book, compiling over 350 drawings, is meant to be carried everywhere and opened just when one needs to take a break, get inspired, and breathe.
“Each of these drawings is fished out from the river of little passing thoughts. I don’t know where they come from but sometimes I take the time to gently scoop them up and set them down. They are a great joy, relief and meditation to make. I hope you can feel that” — Orfeo Tagiuri
