Okuda (1980) is the name under which Spanish artist Oscar San Miguel Erice has been operating since he first began painting in the streets in 1997. His work has since evolved into an authorial visual language based on the use of multicoloured geometric patterns, organic forms, anthropomorphic figures and grey anonymous bodies, which come to life in the form of large-scale murals, installations, paintings and sculptures that offer views on crucial subjects such as existentialism, the universe, the meaning of life and the false freedom of capitalism, highlighting the contradictions between modernity and our roots.
ABOUT THE ART
Print adaptation of Okuda San Miguel's 'El Lago del Deseo' (Lake of Desire), his first large format work in his career.
The Spanish artist's first interpretation of the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, one of his biggest inspirations. The work has formed part of two of Okuda's biggest public exhibitions: his retrospective at Valencia's Carmen gallery for the Fallas festival and the Art Madrid fair, both in 2018.
Part of the proceeds of the sale of the prints will go to the #colouringtheworld initiative.
