Okuda San Miguel was born in Santander, Spain, and has been based in Madrid since 2000. Geometric structures and multicolored prints merge with organic, gray bodies in artistic pieces that could be categorized as Pop-Surrealism with a clear influence by street art. His works often raise contradictions on existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, the false freedom of capitalism, and show a clear conflict between modernity and our roots; in short, between man and himself.
His works can be seen in streets and galleries around the world: India, Mali, Mozambique, the United States, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Mexico and the entire European continent.
Okuda created this masterful piece titled, Universal Chapel, during The Unexpected project of 2016. It is located directly across from Immaculate Conception, a historic Catholic church and ornate cathedral in downtown Fort Smith, Arkansas.
The Unexpected outdoor art can be viewed at any time.
Metered and public parking is located along Garrison and Rogers Avenues and throughout downtown Fort Smith. When services are not being held, visitors can park in at Immaculate Conception church for short periods of time.
