Spotlight: Okuda San Miguel Fallas 2018

Our friends over at Ink and Movement shared this video with us that sums up the work of artist Okuda San Miguel and his team for the celebrations of Fallas 2018 in Valencia this past March.

Okuda was selected in the spring of 2017 to design and manufacture, together with artisans Latorre and Sanz, the piece known as Falla Mayor. This massive totem is the largest and last to be burned at the festival.

Okuda and Ink and Movement embarked on an exciting creative journey in which more than 5000 kilometres were covered, more than 700 spray cans were spent and many hours of sleep were stolen! Concluded, of course, with the feeling of satisfaction that comes from a job well done.

In Valencia, in addition to seeing his biggest intervention in the public space to date -25 meters high- burn (the final destination of all Falla), we could also see a parade of Okuda‘s masks and attend his, again to date, most complete exhibition -“The Multicolored Equilibrium between Animals and Humans”), in the framework of a museum in addition.

We hope you like it! Thanks to Okuda, Zigor at Ink and Movement and Docu Producciones for the images.
