Okuda San Miguel was born on November 19, 1980 in Santander, settled in Madrid since 2000 and graduated in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. From his beginnings in the year 1997, his work in abandoned buildings and factories of his native city were clearly recognizable. In parallel with his work on the street, Okuda also produced more intimate works in his studio, with which from 2009 he evolved towards a more personal way of working.
The geometric structures and multicolored prints are united with gray bodies and organic forms in artistic pieces that could be classified as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of the street. 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; In short, between the human being and himself.
In his work, multicolored geometric architectures are merged with organic forms, bodies without identity, animals without head, a multitude of opposing symbols that incite reflection … A unique and very special iconographic language. 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 whole European continent.
