I locate my paintings, thematically, in the historical moment when the advent of photography began to usurp painting’s primary role in the realistic representation of our collective experience. Working from early photography, which often mimicked the formality and grandeur of Academic Painting, I infuse the images with the formal concerns of Modernism as well as the digital palette of our times. I want to playfully acknowledge the breaking-down of Western Society’s patriarchal and hetero-normative past. Images of stoic Victorian gentlemen are transformed though vivid color and sensual brushwork into exotic, vulnerable creatures of desire.

We’ve found a good idea on the web, on how to show your love for Halloween and typography at the same time. These are chalkboard pumpkins. You may create that normal pumpkin face on those or you simply throw in a concept of your own. If you want to know, how to create chalkboard pumpkins, head to this manual. There’s another interesting chalkboard pumpkin article, of which I used a picture.

Opiemme Writes Poetry And Letterforms Across Italy
Italian fine artist and Street Artist Opiemme took a variety of routes to employ the text-based art on the street this summer with his “journey through painting and poetry,” a project inspired by poets he loves. Breaking apart, recombining, stretching and spreading the written letterform, the public poetic paintings were conceived to be site-specific and included walls and pavement installations across Italy from north to south, including Torino, Bologna, Rieti, Pizzo Calabro, Faggiano (Taranto), Ariano Irpino, Menfi, Genova, Tirano (Sondrio), and finally Rome.
"I paint using stencil and letter to create images to be read and words to be looked at," says Opiemme, who travelled more than 5,000 kilometers by train and bus to do his various installations that included 15 murals and a 7 kilometer long "River of words" painted on the pavement in Turin.
