CALLING VISUAL ARTISTS
Want to showcase your work with The Opacas?
Every song released by The Opacas is accompanied by an acoustic piano version. This version is typically quite different from the Official Release but that is what makes it cool in our opinion.
It also opens the opportunity for us to create a video to showcase the works of local artists and this is where you might come in.
If you have a portfolio of work that you would like to promote, why not consider emailing us at ?
The collaboration is entirely remote and your work will be pushed by us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. We just need your permission and for you to send us pictures of your work.
Check out the 'Videos' section of this website to see how this has worked for others already.
We look forward to hearing from you!
PREVIOUSLY FEATURED ARTISTS
We are delighted to collaborate with Jin Yong for the acoustic piano version of 'We Won't Look Back'. Orignially from China, Jin has made Ireland his home. His work is primarily of wild animals but he brings in beautiful bold colours and then infuses the paintings with uplifting messages that leave you in a happier state of mind. We love his work and hope you enjoy the video.
Kinvara based painter Patrick Kenneally graduated from Limerick College of Art and Design with a degree(hons) in fine art. He won the RDS Taylor award for printmaking and has had work shown both nationally and internationally. do what we do and follow him on facebook (@patrickkenneallyart Wild Atlantic Art) because it lifts the spirit to see new works come on-line.
DR. CHAOSHENG ZHANG
We want Chaosheng to be given the freedom of Galway! He recently featured in the Galway Advertiser but it is his presence on facebook that is so special. His photographs of Galway are wonderful clearly capture a man who loves this town as much as we do. You can see what we mean by checking out his work here!
We saw Emma's paintings of Donegal and just fell in love with them. We asked Emma if she would collaborate with us on for the acoustic piano version of our debut single 'Out of My Mind'. We love her paintings and hope you do too!
Check out her work here!
Check out Rebeccs photos on Instagram @dawlishumbug. If you are like us, they will leave you in awe. What an eye she has.
Rebecca kindly let us use her photographs for our 'pilot' release, an acoustic piano version of 'We Won't Look Back'. We used the video and song to figure out how to use YouTube, Spotify, iTunes etc in a coherent way. We're still learning but doing it with a cracking set of images made it a pleasurable experience.
