Okuda San Miguel

(Oscar San Miguel Erice, Santander, 1980) Artista contemporáneo perteneciente a la corriente del street art y el graffiti, afincado en Madrid desde el año 2000 y Licenciado en Bellas Artes por la Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Desde sus inicios en el año 1997, sus trabajos en vías y fábricas abandonadas de su ciudad natal fueron claramente reconocibles. Paralelamente a sus trabajos en la calle, Okuda comienza también a producir obras más intimas en su estudio, con las que a partir del 2009 evoluciona hacia un camino más personal.

Las estructuras geométricas y estampados multicolores se unen con cuerpos grises y formas orgánicas en piezas artísticas que podrían catalogarse como Surrealismo Pop con una clara esencia de la calle. Sus trabajos a menudo plantean contradicciones sobre el existencialismo, el universo, el infinito, el sentido de la vida, la falsa libertad del capitalismo, y muestran un claro conflicto entre la modernidad y nuestras raíces; en definitiva, entre el ser humano y él mismo.

En su obra, arquitecturas geométricas multicolores se funden con formas orgánicas, cuerpos sin identidad, animales sin cabeza, multitud de símbolos enfrentados que incitan a la reflexión… Un lenguaje iconográfico único y muy especial.

Sus obras se pueden ver en calles y galerías de todo el mundo: India, Mali, Mozambique, Estados Unidos, Japón, Chile, Brasil, Perú, Sudáfrica, México y todo el continente europeo.

Okuda San Miguel Canvas

Obra de Okuda San Miguel / Okuda San Miguel Painting. Spray on wood. 120 x 120 cm

Okuda was born in Santander, Spain on November 19, 1980.

Okuda’s work can be classified as pop surrealism with a clear essence of street art or urban art. His artwork is composed of geometric prints and multicolored ephymeral architectures that help blend with grey bodies and organic forms. These pieces of artwork often raise contradictions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the false freedom of capitalism. They help ignite conversations about the clear conflict between modernity and our roots.

Okuda began his career as a street artist by painting in old factories and lost railways in 1996. Since 1997 his works have been recognized on roads and the factories in Santander. By 2009, his work hit a major point in his career. He had an opportunity to tour with IAM project doing gallery shows in New York City, Berlin, London, and Paris that helped him obtain new and more mature audiences. His work also had a more personal emotion.

Okuda is inspired by surrealism art, pop art, and even different culture the come across with through out his travels. He is also inspired by films that are created by Jodorowsky, Michael Gondry, Leos Carax, and Terry Guilliam to name a few. He is also often inspired by his environment, the people around him, cinema, fashion, ear music, traveling, and his everyday life.

During his career as a street artist he has encountered very few obstacles. These obstacles are generally around the false impressions the capitalism, religion, wars, and law enforcement give. They give individuals a false sense of freedom.
Okuda’s beliefs revolve around his freedom to create art and staying positive. He does not believe in religion but believes that God is inside every individual. The best way to live life is to be good and a peaceful person.

Okuda concludes that his major accomplishments lie in having the freedom to travel around the world creating his best works of art alone, working, and the living experiences with other artists from different cultures.

In the near future Okuda hopes to continue to grow as an artist like he has done over the past few years. His works has been exposed in both solo and collective shows in cities as NY, L.A, Tokyo, Paris, Amsterdam, New Delhi, Mexico D.F amongst many other countries.
Okuda currently resides in Madrid, Spain.

Remed

(Guillaume Alby, Nacido en Paris en 1978, vive y trabaja en Madrid)
Artista plástico originario de Lille, Francia. Reconocido internacionalmente tanto por sus murales de gran escala como por su trabajo de estudio. Influenciado por la corriente del ‘art noveau’, el artista trabaja la figuración por medio de el uso de formas geométricas simples y sinuosas. Remed Trabaja en la conjunción de las matemáticas y la caligrafía, la búsqueda de una pureza armónica combinación con el flujo, la energía de la línea, Remed busca encontrar la verdad a través de la simplicidad, de encontrar un lenguaje universal de la forma y el color.

Desde su regreso a Madrid, donde ahora se ha asentado, Remed ha seguido trabajando e investigando para desarrollarse, convirtiendo su estilo en inigualable. Mientras cada vez produce un mayor número de series de pinturasy objetos, Remed sigue manteniendo una fuerte presencia en el entorno urbano, inscribiendo mensajes caligráfico filosóficos (a menudo con tiza) sobre las paredes de la ciudad, grabando en metal, así como pegando y pintando sus diseños más complejos por toda la ciudad.

Remed (Born in Paris in 1978, lives in Madrid)
Influenced in equal measures by classical 20th century artists such as Modigliani and Léger, as by the Moroccan art of Zellige, (a form of highly decorative enameled terra cotta), Remed’s work has a unique, immediately recognizable quality in both its micro and macro manifestations. Working at the conjunction of mathematics and calligraphy, seeking a harmonic purity combined with the flow, the energy of the line, Remed seeks to find truth through simplicity, to find a universal language of form and colour.

Since returning to Madrid where he has now settled, Remed’s work has continued to refine, developing into what is now an inimitable style. Whilst producing ever increasing series of paintings inside then, Remed has still kept up a strong presence in the urban environment, tagging, albeit in a now highly experimental manner, inscribing philosophical calligraphic messages (often in chalk) onto city walls, etching into metal, as well as both pasting and painting his more complex designs throughout the city.

Zosen & Mina Hamada

Mina Hamada (Louisiana-Estados Unidos)
Mina es una artista plástica de origen japonés afincada en Barcelona desde los finales de 2009. Su trabajo se centra en la pintura, la ilustración y los murales; en los últimos años ha destacado su trabajo mural en grandes superficies. Con un estilo en el cual el color, el ritmo y la improvisación son sus características principales, Mina transmite sus buenas vibraciones a través de sus formas libres y orgánicas.

Zosen
(1978, Buenos Aires, Argentina) Vive y trabaja en Barcelona
Artista Visual. Su primer contacto con la cultura urbana es el skate y, posteriormente, el graffiti. Influenciado por el movimiento Punk y la premisa del “Do it yourself”, empieza como autodidacta y más tarde cursa estudios de arte en la Escuela La Llotja de Barcelona, convirtiéndose así en Técnico Superior de Artes Plásticas y Diseño. Miembro activo de la escena de graffiti de Barcelona desde comienzo de los años 90’s también formó parte del grupo Ovejas Negras (ONG).

Zosen & Mina Hamada artists

Zosen & Mina Hamada ¨Jungla escondida¨ Acrylic on canvas 90×116

Zosen (1978, Buenos Aires, Argentina) Live and works in Barcelona.

Filled with neon colors, geometric patterns and symbols, Zosen’s paintings immerse the viewer in their vivid imagery. The artist creates his proper mythology, flooding walls and
canvases with fantastic characters that reveal his commentary on the happenings of our own world.
An active member of the Barcelona graffiti scene since the early 1990s, Zosen continues to produce projects that carry the anti-authoritarian spirit of his early days in the punk and do-it-yourself movements. After immigrating to Barcelona from Buenos Aires as an adolescent, he began to experiment with different graffiti styles, combining social criticism with amusing characters and letters. In 2001 he became a member of the celebrated crew Ovejas Negras (ONG). Though the crew has disbanded, he continues to collaborate with
its former members as well as artists of different disciplines from around the world.

The influences of skateboarding, fanzines and street culture permeate Zosen’s contemporary work, both on the street and in the studio. His murals bring color and spontaneity to the austere gray of the urban landscape of Barcelona as well as many other international culture capitals. But despite their playful aesthetic, Zosen’s paintings speak out against the social injustices he perceives.

The multi-colored, two dimensional characters, though naive at a first glance, criticize the corruption of today’s society. Folkloric elements combine with the excesses of post-modernity, creating a new vocabulary of symbols.
While Zosen paints on the streets frequently, his repertoire has expanded to include performance art, printmaking, illustration and fashion design. He has shown his work in galleries in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Zosen constantly invents new artistic projects and urban interventions.

Mina Hamada 浜田美南 (Born in Louisiana, USA. Grew up in Tokyo Japan. Live and work in Barcelona)
Mina Hamada is a Japanese painter, whose work is characterized through abstract and organic shapes in soft, bright and warm colours on a monochrome background. Flat and soft forms interact harmoniously balanced, while rhythm and colour provide a striking leitmotif to her work. Mina Hamada’s paintings and drawings are fresh and friendly, personal and sensitive and invite us into the artist’s unconsciousness – a dream world, combining occident and orient, young spirit and profound philosophy. The artist works self-concentrated and investigates unknown fields of painting from the unconscious and improvisation. The titles of her works, mostly in Japanese, reflect this poetic self-analysis and refer to her cross-cultural background and examination with her own identity.
Mina Hamada, born in Louisiana, USA, grows up in Tokyo, Japan, where she studies Design and Illustration at the Sokei Academy of Fine Art & Design. In Japan she has first exhibitions,
presenting her illustrations and handmade storybooks, which combine her own drawing and
short story-poems. In 2006 she wins the Special prize of the Kazuyoshi Iino-Award for her
picture book Neboke House.
At the end of 2009 she moves to Barcelona, Spain, where she studies Typography and Hispanic Studies and stays to date. Mina Hamada grows to love the city’s Street Art scene and meets the artist Zosen. She starts to experiment with large-scale murals and Zosen & Mina Hamada consolidate as an artistic duo. They start collaborating on joint murals, installations, serigraphy and participate at numerous Mural Festivals and exhibitions since 2012. Their collective and individual work is exhibited in galleries and institutions all over Europe, in Miami, Tokyo and lately on their tour through South America, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Lima, Peru, where they stay several months until February 2015 in order to discover the rich popular culture from the Andean States.

Hell’o

(Bruselas, Bélgica, 1982)
Colectivo formado por Jérôme Meynen (Blastus) & Antoine Detaille (Tatone), antes conocido como “Hell’o Monsters”.
El nombre del colectivo  “Hell’o”, contiene una connotación positiva y de bienvenida, combinado con “hell” que tradicionalmente se asocia con algo inquietante, sombrío y desconocido…

La dicotomía es una de las claves narrativas de su trabajo; donde las dualidades, el juego de conceptos y fuerzas son una constante más o menos evidente a lo largo de toda su obra, por choque o asociación.
Hell’o es también el cúmulo y la síntesis de múltiples tradiciones por las cuales el colectivo siente afinidad: las fábulas, el esoterismo, la alegoría, los mitos, emblemas, parábolas… En sus dibujos, esculturas, instalaciones o collages, siempre habita una especie de reflexión irónica y misteriosa que nos sumerge en un universo donde las escenas y el tono aceptan y reclaman múltiples interpretaciones y donde las líneas, los colores y las masas construyen un lenguaje estético único, de contornos precisos, acabados limpios y una minuciosidad a veces obsesiva.

Sus dos componentes han estilizado sus trazos y lenguajes hasta alcanzar un estilo fusionado que convierte en tarea difícil el atribuir la autoría de cada personaje o escena hasta para un espectador especializado.

Hell’o collective, formerly known as Hell’o Monsters, emerged in the late 1990s as a result of the meeting between Jerôme Meynen and Antoine Detaille. They quickly left behind wall art, graffiti letters and spray paint in favour of paper, characters, ink drawings and paint, moving on to sculpture, installations and wall drawing. They developed a unique graphic vocabulary that is complex and ambiguous, which they continue to expand in the course of their creative output, customising many recurrent elements, which they combine each time with new characters, or incorporate into unusual settings.

Nano4814

(Vigo, 1978)
Nano4814 comienza a utilizar la calle como soporte creativo a medidados de los años 90. Inspirado originalmente por las formas del graffiti tradicional, pronto sus piezas se cargan de particularidades iconicas y narrativas, desarrollando un mundo creativo propio, tanto a nivel estetico como conceptual.

Tras licenciarse en Bellas Artes en la universidad de Pontevedra y una breve estancia formativa en Londres, estudiando en escuelas como Saint Martins School of Arts o el London College of Printing, se muda a Madrid en el 2004 para desarrollar su trabajo artistico exponiendo en galerias e instituciones tanto en España como en el extranjero.
De los proyectos en los que ha participado podriamos destacar “Planet Prozess” en Berlin, la exposición “Urbanitas” en el MARCO de Vigo o “Street Art” en la Tate Modern de Londres entre otros muchos.
Forma parte del colectivo artistico El Equipo Plastico, junto con Eltono, Sixe y Nuria Mora.
Su obra se nutre de los distintos campos creativos en los cuales actúa: desde el diseño o la ilustración, a sus intervenciones callejeras o su trabajo de galería, siendo este último el que le permite centrarse en conceptos más personales, trabajando con técnicas como el dibujo, la instalación, la escultura o la pintura mural.

NANO4814 PAINTING
Nano4814. Painting. Acrylic & enamel on wood.

Nano4814 is an artist born in the small galician town of Vigo, were he started to use the streets as a place for self expression in the mid 90s. Originally inspired by the character forms of traditional graffiti writing, his figures soon started to load themselves with narrative and iconic particularities, developing his own creative world, either aesthetically and conceptually speaking. In this world the inner sense meets the observation of the outside world and together they become strange partners in the quest for hidden (in)coherence.

After studying fine arts and passing through a brief formative stage in London, in such prestigious schools as Saint Martins School of Arts and the London College of Printing, he moves to Madrid  in 2004 where he develops his work as an artist, exhibiting in galleries and participating in different projects both in Spain and abroad, bringing inside his own experience working outdoors and questioning personal subjects in a strange context.

Jon Fox

Artista. Pintor & Ilustrador. Reino Unido, 1981
Biografía Jon Fox
Estructuras geométricas dinámicas, formas angulares, colores llamativos, figuras místicas y sus luchas existenciales caracterizan las escenas de la pintura de Jon Fox.
Nacido en Hereford, Reino Unido, Fox se graduó en Pintura de Bellas Artes de la Universidad de Brighton en 2004.
Siendo un niño de los años 80, se sintió atraído inicialmente por las historietas japonesas y americanas, cómics y juegos de ordenador, junto con el hip hop y los estilos de graffiti que vienen con él. Sus influencias posteriores incluyen a Caravaggio, Euan Uglow, Miró y el movimiento de Ukiyo-e. Sobre la base de introspección personal, Fox hace malabares con la narrativa y la composición pictórica para producir mindscapes vivos, viajes en capas en busca de el equilibrio y una energía subyacente. Como explica el artista, “Supongo que mi creencia es que si vas lo suficientemente lejos en el interior de tí mismo como individuo, puedes llegar a un espacio universal que todos compartimos y está interconectado. Intento crear mi trabajo dentro de ese espacio “.
Fox ha participado en numerosas exposiciones colectivas, entre ellas egrégor: El Zenith de Surrealismo Pop en Yves Laroche Galerie d’Art, Montreal (2014), y ha celebrado exposiciones individuales en varias ciudades de Europa y los EE.UU. como Amsterdam, Copenhague y San Francisco.

Jon Fox (Artist, Painter & Illustrator UK, 1981.)
Artist Bio
Dynamic geometric structures, angular shapes and striking colour characterise Jon Fox’s tightly packed scenes of mystical figures and their gruelling existential struggles. Born in Hereford, UK, Fox graduated in Fine Art Painting from the University of Brighton in 2004.A child of the 80s, he was initially attracted to Japanese and American cartoons, comics and computer games, along with hip hop and the graffiti styles that came with it. Later influences include Caravaggio, Euan Uglow, Miro and the Ukiyo-e movement. Drawing on personal introspection, Fox juggles narrative and pictorial composition to produce vivid mindscapes, layered journeys in search of an underlying energy and balance. As the artist explains, “I guess my belief is that if you go far enough inside yourself as an individual, you reach a universal space that we all share and are connected to. I try to create my work from that space.”
Fox has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including Égrégore: The Zenith of Pop Surrealism at Yves Laroche Galerie d’Art, Montréal (2014), and has held solo shows in various cities across Europe and the US such as Amsterdam, Copenhagen and San Francisco.
