Okuda San Miguel
The Digital Zoo series depicts a wide variety of animals, including Asian wildlife as a tribute to Okuda’s first exhibition in the region, and other animals that have been well-represented in sculpture and painting throughout his career.
Okuda's distinctive style of geometric harmonies emboldened with intense colours had brought his works to a parallel universe. In his work, rainbow geometric architectures blend with organic shapes that could be categorised as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. His works often raise questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of society’s false freedom, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots; ultimately, between man and the same.
“Because I believe the reason for Art, apart from breaking down boundaries amongst people, cultures and religions, is basically to make people feel.”
– Okuda San Miguel
