You got love art in all forms and you got love even more when an artist pays tribute to another fellow artist. That´s what the Italian artist Opiemme does on his latest piece.
The first impressions of the sea are the structure of the wall, with Opiemme using phrases of the first pages of the book in this piece:
“The sea was a bad expanse of silver, the sky an infinite smile resting upon my head…”
“My lungs drank in with avidity all that free air, that salty breath. I would race up and down in the sun on the shore and face the waves as they curled on the sand.”
The Dolphins are, as Opiemme describes, the symbol of this connection between the writer and the sea, giving the piece a certain movement.
Here is how Opiemme describes his work:
“”Dolphins” is a site-specific mural refering on the hard life of Sibilla Aleramo. A vortex of dolphins, a downard spiral, aims to create a relationship between the sea described in her words, and what she passed through before arriving to this town: being raped by a brutal husband who worked for her father. “
