Orode’ is not only a mosaic artist but also a painter and a great poet.

The artist developed a rare-unique technique of hand-cut ceramic tiles usually on wooden board.

He often says that mosaic is not considered enough in the art world and that it’s now time to let it shine. Orode’ is working to make mosaic alive again and make audience re-consider it for it’s great power and beauty.

There is also other artists who were taught by Orode’ his precious technique and those are: Dario Dieci and Riccardo Matlakas who are bringing forward the idea of Mosaic as an eco-friendly art technique in connection with key elements of contemporary art.
