Moroccan Church in a Vibrant Geometric Mural

Okuda_15After covering a church turned skatepark in Spain with his signature style of murals, Okuda San Miguel has now transformed an abandoned Moroccan church into a 360-degree mural titled “11 Mirages to Freedom.” The street artist covered the structure in geometric bears, birds, and human faces, produced as a part of the British Council‘s Street Art Caravane Initiative.Okuda_07Working with the architecture already in place, San Miguel painted each of the building’s eleven faces while incorporating the structure’s barred windows. These he formed into bird cages, hats, and masks that are seamlessly incorporated…as long as you don’t look into the barred openings.Okuda_08The church is uniformly painted in a brilliant shade of yellow, with smaller architectural details painted in equally vibrant colors. You can see more of San Miguel’s murals in the video Infinite World included below.Okuda_11Okuda_01Okuda_09Okuda_04Okuda_05Okuda_06Okuda_13
