Pop Surrealist muralist Okuda San Miguel has always included bold shapes and saturated colors in his paintings. His recent work, “11 Mirages to the Freedom” takes his signature street style to an old church in Yousooufia, Morocco. The mural wraps the entire façade in a geometric rainbow explosion featuring 11 different characters. The characters are painted as such that they take on a three-dimensional quality by interacting with the structural features of the church.
