Okuda San Miguel

Okuda

Born in Spain 1980. Lives and works in Madrid, Spain.

Graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Madrid’s Complutense University.

His large-scale murals and street sculptures can be found dominating parks and squares in towns around the world.

His work could be categorized as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. It raises questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of the false freedom of capitalism, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots.

“My art reflects my love of metamorphosis. Playing with shape and form I highlight this juxtaposition within my characters, mixing up their shapes and personalities.

I use colors as a symbol of life and the natural world, whilst the grey scale in my paintings represents cement, death, dust and the material of classical sculptures. I am constantly challenged to find a harmonious balance of the grey scale with my vibrant palette.“
