Best Art Drops: Okuda Prints, D*Face Sculptures & More

Including collaborative surfboards by Krink and JunxJo.

Branding oneself allows for unabridged creative freedom. Contemporary artists today are focusing their time on building a personal artistic style to connect with a wider audience and open up new outlets for creativity. Iconic artists such as Picasso, Dali, and Warhol have established brands of their own, having harnessed a recognizability for their respective styles that are now world-renowned.

Take, for instance, Okuda San Miguel. The Madrid-based artist is widely-recognized for his colorful geometric motifs that have adorned everything from abandoned churches to pillow cushions. His strategic approach in choosing the organizations and people he wants to align with is key to elevating his own personal brand.

Read on to learn more about Okuda alongside the best art drops this week.
