OKUDA SAN MIGUEL




Bio

Nacido el 19 de noviembre de 1980 en Santander, afincado en Madrid desde el año 2000 y Licenciado en Bellas Artes por la Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Desde sus inicios en el año 1997, sus trabajos en vías y fábricas abandonadas de su ciudad natal fueron claramente reconocibles. Paralelamente a sus trabajos en la calle, Okuda comienza también a producir obras más intimas en su estudio, con las que a partir del 2009 evoluciona hacia un camino más personal.

Las estructuras geométricas y estampados multicolores se unen con cuerpos grises y formas orgánicas en piezas artísticas que podrían catalogarse como Surrealismo Pop con una clara esencia de la calle. Sus trabajos a menudo plantean contradicciones sobre el existencialismo, el universo, el infinito, el sentido de la vida, la falsa libertad del capitalismo, y muestran un claro conflicto entre la modernidad y nuestras raíces; en definitiva, entre el ser humano y él mismo.

En su obra, arquitecturas geométricas multicolores se funden con formas orgánicas, cuerpos sin identidad, animales sin cabeza, multitud de símbolos enfrentados que incitan a la reflexión... Un lenguaje iconográfico único y muy especial.

Sus obras se pueden ver en calles y galerías de todo el mundo: India, Mali, Mozambique, Estados Unidos, Japón, Chile, Brasil, Perú, Sudáfrica, México y todo el continente europeo.

Bio

Born November 19, 1980 in Santander and based in Madrid since 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid. Since its inception in 1997, his pieces on rail-roads and abandoned factories in his hometown were clearly recognizable. Parallel to his work in the street, Okuda also starts producing more intimate works in his studio, with which from 2009 evolves into a more personal way.

The multicolored geometric structures and patterns 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 himself.

In his work, multicolored geometric architectures blend with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals, symbols that encourage reflexion ... A unique 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 European continent among others.
