Opiemme in Lodz, Poland, 2016 2016-09-26

Opiemme in Lodz, Poland, 2016

A new step for Opiemme “Vortex” series, inspired this time by Taurus constellation, the zodiac sign of the most famous Lodz architect Hilary Majewski (15 May 1838), who lived nearby the location. Majewski, through his architectural designs, largely shaped the historical center of Lodz.

This mural is much more than a wall painting: a word, „blame” (in Polish „Wina”), stenciled on the wall, has been erased by throwing 300 eggs filled with colorful paint by the local community, who took an active part in this collective painting and performance.

After this happening Opiemme kept painting a minimalist Taurus constellation. The erased word „Blame/Wina” was replaced by both “Destiny” and the Polish “Możliwości” that means “opportunities”; and fits best this area which is affected by intense changes at the architectural, social and cultural level.

The wider colored circle on the left is the result of this relational performance on a wall  of 20 Jaracza Street in Lodz, and represents Aldebaran, an orange giant star located about 65 light years from the Sun in the zodiac constellation of Taurus.  Taurus symbolizes an idea of power, re-birth, and renaissance.

    2 days ago by i_support_street_art  @alicepasquini  just returned from the island of Santa Maria in the Azores for Festival Sete Sois Sete Luas. Using spraypaint meant for cars—the only kind available—she painted two pieces close to the ocean. Inspired by the form and color of the walls, she painted two women—or maybe the same woman—one in front of the other. They gaze out toward the horizon and look at the ocean from this island. “Today we’re living in difficult times in where many cross the water toward new lands in search of a better life, not always arriving in the end."  #instagraffiti   #isupportstreetart   #thestreetisourgallery   #alicepasquini

  • Genius Loci is the title of this intervention for Muri
    5 days ago by i_support_street_art 'Genius Loci' is the title of this intervention for Muri a perdere curated by  @artepubblicap  an art project born in Ascoli Piceno intended for the areas affected by the earthquake in the Italian region of Marche. As the artist explains “When I was told the story of this wall It seemed as if a ghost was working to keep safe this part of the construction that survived the earthquake. I imagined that the structure was held up by the hands of an invisible and positive force that was preserving and taking care of it, as of a very precious thing.”
