The critic Gian Ruggero Manzoni states that “Orodè stands with a desperately poetic sign, witness of the end of an era”. His characteristic ceramic and stucco mosaics were born in the Vincent City House-Museum, in Guagnano (LE), where between 2000 and 2004 the artist lived, creating twenty medium and large-sized works on the internal and external walls of the structure . 2014 sees him as the protagonist in Milan, with a triptych on display at the Triennale Design Museum and a large ceramic mosaic work on an external wall of the studio house of the architect Fabio Novembre.

He collaborates with some international brands, such as the British brand Victoria + Albert for which he creates an artist bathtub.
