SELECTED WORKS

Digital Zoo
 

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.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Okuda San Miguel was born in Spain in 1980. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Madrid’s Complutense University. His unique iconographic language of multicolored geometric structures and patterns on the streets, railroads and abandoned factories around the globe have made him one of the world’s most recognizable street artists of today. Highly sought after for large scale projects, Okuda is perhaps best known for his conversion of an abandoned Spanish church aptly named Kaos Temple, which has become a new icon of contemporary art.

Parallel to his work outdoors, in 2009 Okuda started his own studio practice and his fine art has been exhibited in galleries from India, Mali, Mozambique, United States, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Mexico and the European continent among others.
