11 Mirages to Freedom: Moroccan church covered with vibrant geometric murals by Okuda San Miguel

Madrid-based artist Okuda San Miguel (previously) covered the structure of a Moroccan church in geometric colorful figures of bears, birds, and human faces. The intervention was produced as a part of the British Council’s Street Art Caravane Initiative.

In his work, rainbow geometric architectures blend with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals, and symbols that encourage reflection in artistic pieces that could be categorized as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. His works often raise questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of society’s false freedom, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots; ultimately, between man and the same.
