Out running a few errands this date, before the snow, rain and sleet hit, we found ourselves on the South side of False Creek. After parking the car, we wandered by this mural by famous mural painter Okuda San Miguel from Spain.
Okuda San Miguel, Óscar San Miguel Erice (born 19 November 1980) is a Spanish painter and sculptor known for his distinctive style of colorful geometric patterns that portray animals, skulls, religious iconography and human figures. He is perhaps most famous for painting the Kaos Temple in Llanera, Asturias, Spain. His murals can be seen on buildings and objects across the world in India, Mali, France, the United States, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Mexico, Canada (including Edmonton & Vancouver), Morocco, Ukraine and Spain.
Since he painted the mural in Edmonton, we always hoped to happen upon his Vancouver mural during our travels. On this date, it was sheer fluke we found it, without even looking.
