Dorothy Circus Gallery London in collaboration with Ink and Movement is proud to present “Freedom is the new Rainbow”, a solo show by internationally renowned contemporary artist Okuda San Miguel. The show will inaugurate on the 24th of September, 2021, at Dorothy Circus Gallery in London. Simultaneously the Roman premises of Dorothy Circus Gallery will host a Focus Show dedicated to the artist in Rome on the 16th of September.
In line with its curatorial path, Dorothy Circus Gallery once again devotes its attention to one of the excellences of international street art. Following the hypnotising figures presented by French artist Miss Van with a solo exhibition, “Pale Moonlight Muses”, renowned Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel follows with a brand new series similarly inspiring.
Sophisticated and colourful characters are both present in Okuda's brand new series in which the subjects and objects are bound to the theme of freedom and emancipation. His unique iconographic pattern, inspired by the most recent phenomenons of contemporary society, makes him one of the most important street artists of a new generation hungry for change.
Deeply influenced by the surrealistic works of Dalí and Magritte, and from the compositions of Hieronymus Bosch as much as Niki de Saint Phalle, Yayoi Kusama, Keiichi Tanaami and Tomokazu Matsuyama, the artist's paintings bring us back to the geometric decomposition of Picasso and Braque.
Okuda uses a palette close to the geometries and the colours of Peter Sedgley's kinetic art, in conjunction with Stanley Whitney's work on primary colours. For this extraordinary series, the artist reveals once again his most profound involvement with battles for social equality, in perfect harmony with his avant-garde and profoundly contemporary vision. His art leads its audience in a romantic adventure characterised by the fusion and coexistence of man and woman, redesigning the paradigm of freedom in a kaleidoscopic castle of the contemporary fairytale.
