Geometric Street Art by Okuda

I recently rediscovered my passion for street art after visiting an exhibit showcasing some great talent in Chicago. The experience was reminiscent of my trip to Graffiti Graveyard in Duluth, MN.

Okuda, based in Madrid, produces large scale murals which a multitude of  color with the greying shapes of the surrounding buildings. While much of his work challenges the meaning of life and the false freedom of capitalism, I find that I like his abstract pieces that feature the buildings themselves are much more interesting:

  1. You are right, the abstract pieces give a new face to the building, but maybe the are not just decorative, maybe behind the beautiful design is something to be read, that at the end could have a bigger message that the more figurative works. what could be? that is the question

  2. I love his abstract work, the use of colour and shapes really work in the spaces he chooses. It would be interesting to compare this to his more politically active work. You should also check out my blog if you like street art!
