Okuda San Miguel‘s playful graphic style pairs perfectly with the location of his newest murals which run along the exterior walls of a children's kindergarten in Arcugnano, Italy. Bold geometric patterns and colorful symbols of the local culture emerge from his distinct street style. Completed for the third edition of the Art in the Streets Project, with the help of his assistant Antonyo Marest, his newest series of vibrant paintings add a unique pizazz to the school's faade.
Known for his pop surrealistic technique, Miguel's new work still reflects his core aesthetic style. Often creating pieces that aim to have both a contextual depth and visual richness, these five new murals continue the trend, referencing traditional Italian symbols as well as touching on themes of love, peace, and nature. A slightly more abstract version of the San Marco's lion serves as a nod to the symbol of nearby Venice; amazingly colorful mystical creatures pop off the concrete like animated cartoons perfectly suited to their new-found home surrounded by school children.
