Vibrant colors and shapes are brought to a formerly untended area in Fort Smith, Arkansas, through Spanish street artist Okuda San Miguel. San Miguel revitalized dilapidated areas with his recent project, The Rainbow Embassy. Through a series of immersive arts initiatives, the project aimed to bring life back to the unattended areas in Arkansas. Colossal has the details:

For the installation, Okuda painted a neglected house that occupied a lot adjacent to Darby Junior High School with a series of multi-colored geometric shapes and lines. The structure even has two faces resembling animals painted on its sides.
“This project gave me the possibility to expand on my previous work, adding in more architectonic dimension and completing my vision of mythical animals,” Okuda says. He wants his work to bring “a touch of imagination and play into the daily lives of the neighboring community and students and Darby Junior High, as they will get to enjoy the installation and watch as it evolves through the seasons.”
