Italian artist Opiemme sent over a few pics of his last piece in Bologna, Italy.
“Irradiation” is part of a new series inspired by the stars, the sky and the Universe in general and according to the artists, this little spot was something he wanted to paint for a long long time until January this year when he won a competition at the Setup Fair making it easier for him to get permission to paint the spot.
Irradiation is also inspired by ‘He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven’ a lovely poem by Yeats:
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
If you happen to be around, this new piece is located on Piazza XX Settembre, close to the Central Station, just look up.
