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:
