Madrid Artists Blend Contrasting Styles to Bring Colorful Street Art Murals to the World

Colorful Madrid artists Remid and Okuda have combined two different aesthetics to create a colorful, breathtaking new style in the Streets of Colour mural series. The series brings vibrant murals to Miami, London, Oslo, Madrid, Brussels and La Rioja. The colorful street art pieces offer expressive love letters of Spanish culture to cities that embrace wine, food, culture and art.


Okuda brings a Cubist sensibility to the murals, painting with geometric shapes and bright neon colors. He specializes in street art, murals, sculptures and installations. His work has been exhibited in Paris, London, New York, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Chile and Brazil.

French artist Remid employs a more abstract style, using bright colors and flat objects. His walls, canvas and sculptures are inspired by cubism, graphic and pop art. He has held hundreds of exhibitions in Italy, Spain, Serbia, Mexico, Morocco, Norway and South Africa. The results of the two creative styles are vibrantly colorful mural masterpieces with intricate shapes, patterns and color combinations.


In Miami, the artists brought the Streets of Colour to the Wynwood Arts District with a brilliant 30×190-foot mural. The city is the sixth canvas for the global art series, produced by Spanish winery Campo Viejo. The U.S. installation celebrates Campo Viejo winery’s first limited edition bottle.

The Miami mural is located at Northwest 23rd Street and Northwest Fifth Avenue in the Wynwood Arts District, and the limited edition Campo Viejo Reserva 2008 bottle will be available in Florida beginning August 2014 and will be available across the U.S. this fall.

The Streets of Colour is a collaboration of Remed and Okuda with Campo Viejowines. The project began in April 2013, when the artists created a twenty-feet sculpture in their vineyard in Logronio – La Rioja (Spain), inspired by the environment and colorful expressiveness of the wines. The project continued in different cities in Europe such as Madrid, London and Brussels, and now has launched in North America.
