OKUDA SAN MIGUEL
SCOPE Miami Beach is delighted to host renowned artist Okuda San Miguel in conjunction with Hi-Fructose Magazine for his first Miami Art Week exhibition. He will be creating an immersive sculpture and mural installation inside of the SCOPE atrium space where he will be painting a live mural, inviting spectators to follow his progress in real time and to be characters inside the universes that he so expertly creates.
For over 10 years, Okuda has been creating monumental murals and installations around the world from the sides of buildings to prestigious museum institutions. His large sale murals and street sculptures can be found dominating parks and squares around the world. His insatiable thirst for creation is evident through his vibrant mixed media approach to works on canvas and paper mixed with diverse elements of embroidery, collage, and wood.
