Since 1998 Opiemme is looking for new ways of presenting poetry. The artist’s poetics is known to get in touch the visual art world with the one of literature, with references to visual poetry and street poetry actions.
Opiemme has been defined as the “poet of street art”, for his public art interventions, installations, calligrams and collective performances used for bringing verses in the street. Poetry becomes a medium for painting new images, and images become words for writing new poetry. Opiemme’s search explores poetry through social themes. By transforming words into colour and images. He allows his works to be interpreted two-dimensionally in a way in which letters simultaneously become its content and depth. Images to be read and words to be looked at – with a political mindset and yet without bias – Opiemme’s works speak of freedom, justice, civil ethics and respect towards nature: art without boundaries which dreams of hope. His work starts from poetry and moves towards a contamination with visual arts, and it contains a constant renewal of communicative urgencies.
