Paris: Okuda & Remed “Temples et Ames”

Okuda & Remed

ADDA & SARTO Gallery in Paris is currently showing a duo exhibition with artists OKUDA and REMED titled ‘ Temples et Ames’.

One is from Lille in France, the other from Santander in Spain. Madrid adopted them both and they each developed in their own way a very particular style of urban art. On one side the poetry of REMED, on the other side the inexhaustible energy of OKUDA, both playing with sunny colours inspired by the Spanish sun.

OKUDA SAN MIGUEL and REMED worked together for the first time in 2011 on two canvases, linking their styles within their work. In 2012, under the direction of Anna Dimitrova, they began a long serie of collaborations together that took them to more than 20 countries around the world. From Moscow to Miami via Oslo, Madrid, Mexico… These are the cities that inspire them and where they accumulate life experiences closely linked to their creations. They are multidisciplinary artists: from walls to giant sculptures, canvases, boats…

A real synergy has been developing between them and their work. Evolving through the years, their creativity gave birth to a third artist.

While they both continue their path with exhibitions around the world and notable mural interventions, their strong creative connection remains present.

“Temples and Souls” showcases just how contemporary their work is, far from their debut on the streets

Okuda San Miguel

Okuda  invites the viewer into a psychedelic vortex of colours and geometric patterns.
In his work, rainbow geometric architectures blend with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals and symbols. His works often raise questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of the false freedom of capitalism, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots.

Remed works harmoniously with geometry and calligraphy, developing a universal language of shapes and colors. Playing with the visible and invisible, figurative and abstract, he makes his figures disappear within vivid colours and flat patterns. He also loves playing words and created several typographies His artworks tell intricate stories and poems on the significance of life and love.

Paris: Okuda – The Dream of Mona Lisa

Okuda - The dream of Mona Lisa

Anna Dimitrova from Adda Gallery and Montana Gallery and Valériane Mondot from Taxie Gallery join forces to celebrate a collaborative new gallery ADDA & TAXIE and present a monographic and the first Parisian exhibition of Spanish artist OKUDA SAN MIGUEL called ‘The Dream of Mona Lisa’.

Inspired by the city of Paris, according to Okuda, the enigmatic Mona Lisa dreams of human figures and muses of the great classic masters. Being a creator and contemporary master, Okuda interprets these icons through his own surrealist prism using intense psychedelic colors and geometric harmonies.

Blending rainbow geometric landscapes with organic shapes, headless animals, figures, and personal iconography, his works produces mental stimulation and visually pleasing content. The artist continuously tries to balance the gray scale with his vibrant palette, using colors as a symbol of life and nature and the latter as a symbol of cement, death, dust and the material of classic sculptures.

In his latest series, Okuda San Miguel expresses his own vision of what the human being is made of. Humans are confronted with their roots, between its natural and ideal part, represented by trees and different types of animals and the capitalist society, represented by bricks. Showing us the world where human beings and animals are created equal, the artist distils his own personal vision of God. This conceptual research is the result of his journeys and continuous contact with different environments. The artist sums up the contradictions between existentialism, universe, infinite, freedom, modernity and the meaning of life as an inextinguishable thirst.
