A few blocks from our temporary apartment in Madrid, my wife and I spotted this eye-catching street art piece by Okudart. The very first thing you'll notice is the intense burst of colors radiating from the mural. The piece is bright and vibrant in all the right ways and truly adds life to an already bustling city.
Okudart aka Oscar San Miguel Erice has been based in Madrid since 2000. His works, which he classifies as Pop Surrealism, features geometric shapes on multicolored buildings and blends gray bodies with organic forms. According to his website, “The 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.”
