The Spanish street artist known as Okuda San Miguel recently brought his signature style to a blighted neighborhood in Fort Smith, Arkansas . His project, “The Rainbow Embassy,” was organized by Justkids for the Unexpected , a group trying to revitalize economically disadvantaged areas of Arkansas through a series of artistic initiatives.
For the project, Okuda painted an abandoned house next to Darby Junior High School with a series of multicolored geometric shapes and lines, along with two faces resembling animals painted on its sides.
“This project gave me the opportunity to develop my previous work, adding an architectural dimension and completing my vision of mythical animals , “ says Okuda.
Okuda, whose real name is Oscar San Miguel Ericea, has brought his innovative style to far-flung projects from India to the Americas and from Africa to Russia.You can find more of the artist’s vibrant transformations on his Instagram profile.
