Opiemme with around 1000 children, ages between 3 and 13, recently created a new wall in Rome, Italy. Inspired by the Renaissance symbol, Pisces, the artist worked along side with the children from the school I.C. Via Giuseppe Messina to create this piece of art.
Energy of the City 2016 took place at the beginning of October in Łódź, Poland. With the theme of the festival focused on the process of revitalization that the city is suffering from in the last years.
Opiemme’s new wall, is a big one. And its made for an occupied place in Genova (N-west italy). The place is called LSOA BURIDDA and a clearing out by the police and University (the property of the building) could be soon the outcome.
