okuda san miguel canvasses 19th century castle with mulitcolored mirrored skulls

in the loire valley — a historic region in central france — okuda san miguel has painted the façade of a late 19th century castle with colorful geometries and vibrant motifs. okuda’s signature markings can be seen canvassing the exterior of château de la valette, wrapping around its window frames and canvassing its arched doorways. a dramatic tableau of bright pink, yellow, blue and red hues come together to form the mirrored image of two skulls, giving the landmark site a vivid and kaleidoscopic new ‘face’.

okuda has completed ‘skull mirror castle’ as part of urban art paris’ label valette festival in pressigny-les-pins. curated by by night gallery and ink & movement, the artwork forms part of a monumental event dedicated to street culture taking place across the estate of la valette, which extends across acres of picturesque wooded landscapes. the on-site castle, chapel and dormitory buildings were abandoned for more than thirty years before being purchased and re-conceived as playground for international artists from the street culture scene.
