Painted Train by Okuda San Miguel

A configuration of prismatic shapes on a train car in Kiev, Ukraine.

Okuda san Miguel has turned an ordinary train into a vibrant display of colorful characters. Completed for the Kiev Metro in conjunction with the Independence Day of Ukraine, the metal cars are canvassed on both sides by a wildly prismatic configuration of shapes, symbols and figurative illustrations. As part of a public project managed by ArtUnitedUs, Okuda has painted an entire train from the existing Kiev metro network. Ten compositions are distributed across five cars, each bearing the Spanish creative’s distinct personal style and forming ‘an introspective trip into his art’. Colorfully painted faces are pictured alongside vibrant geometries, abstract expressions of flying birds and motifs sourced from the sky and universe.
