Around the world with Okuda San Miguel
Okuda San Miguel is an illusionist. He transforms, shapeshifts and magics the everyday into the extraordinary with an imagination that seems to dip into other dimensions. His works can be seen in streets and galleries around the world: India, Mali, Mozambique, United States, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Mexico and the European continent among others.
The multicolored geometric structures and patterns of his works are joined with gray bodies and organic forms in artistic pieces that could be categorized as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. His works often raise contradictions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, the false freedom of capitalism, and show a clear conflict between modernity and our roots; ultimately, between man and the same.
Since 2009 Okuda has been working more on personal works in his studio. We are thrilled to be presenting a selection of these works at SCOPE Miami Beach 2016. You can email bree[at]retrospectgalleries.com if you would like to recieve Okuda’s catalogue!
