Since 1997, when his pieces were first spotted on the streets, Okuda has developed a “distinct visual language of multicoloured geometric patterns, organic forms and grey bodies, applied to murals, installations and interventions which offer views on crucial subjects such as existentialism, the universe, the meaning of life and the false freedom of capitalism, highlighting the contradictions between modernity and our roots”.

Underdogs is an international working platform based in Lisbon, Portugal that aims at creating space within the contemporary art scene for artists connected with the new languages of urban visual culture. Its purpose is to reflect with precision what we see as an important segment of contemporary visual and graphic culture by fostering the establishment of connections, partnerships and collaborative efforts between artists, cultural agents and venues, while helping to bridge the gap between these and the public.
