He has held over 160 solo exhibitions in museums, private galleries and art fairs in major cities around the world.
In 1991 Celiberti also executed two prestigious public works: the Mosaic of Friendship in the University of in Ljubljana and the fresco of over 600 square meters on the vaulted ceiling of the Kawakyu Hotel in Japan.
