StolenSpace is proud to present ‘Lost Olympus’ the new solo show by OKUDA.
In ‘Lost Olympus’ OKUDA offers us a representation of the mythological idols and characters from ancient Greece as contemporary icons through his geometric structures, multi-coloured patterns and dreamlike scenes as part of his continuous reflection of our contradictions, longings, intuitions and beliefs.
OKUDA’s work reflects a surreal world of geometric colour and pattern. Exploring existentialist contradictions, the meaning of life and the false freedoms of capitalism, his work has been classified as a kind of pop surrealism.
A certain existential restlessness and a deep curiosity for the history of the different cultures that he finds in his way have led him to admire the form chosen in each of them to represent their gods, legends and myths as a repertoire of images and complementary concepts.
