Having curated several global artists, the client decided to work with Okuda San Miguel.
His concept is of “protection”. And offers us that in order to protect ourselves, we have to protect nature and all the levels of life/life activity that it offers us.
A large animal (rabbit or cat), serves as support and protection for other smaller beings that move between the human and the animal, to show a relationship of protection, love and respect for nature as a way to grow spiritually.
Okuda San Miguel graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Madrid’s Complutense University. His unique iconographic language of multicolored geometric structures and patterns on the streets, railroads and abandoned factories around the globe have made him one of the world’s most recognizable street artists of today. Highly sought after for large scale projects, Okuda is perhaps best known for his conversion of an abandoned Spanish church aptly named Kaos Temple, which has become a new icon of contemporary art.
