OKUDA

SELECTED EXHIBITIONS AND PROJECTS

Okuda (Santander, 1980) is one of the most important names in urban art worldwide.
His works can be seen in streets and galleries all over the world: India, Mali, Mozambique, United States, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Mexico and the European continent, among others. In 2018 Art Madrid dedicated him a personal exhibition while the Valencia Museum inaugurated a major retrospective. The ARCO Madrid fair commissioned a public art project in 2016, while in 2015, among other events, he created Heads Juice for Expo Milano. In 2014 he was among the protagonists of the exhibition organized by the Benetton Foundation at the CAC in Malaga.
In his work, where multicolored geometric architectures merge with organic forms, bodies without identity, headless animals, symbols encourage reflection, between serious and facetious: a unique iconographic language. The pop-surrealism that distinguishes his work come from his travels, in cinema, in music (many collaborations with important names of rap and soul as Alicia Keys and Kanye West), in fashion and in everyday life.
