Location: Boston Seaport, MA

Air, Sea and Land is the largest public art undertaking by world-renowned Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel. Develop, curate and produce by global creative house and curator Justkids, and commissioned by Boston Seaport, this vibrant kaleidoscope of seven large-scale sculptures was, designed specifically for display within Seaport’s sweeping cityscape. The work’s eight- to 12-foot sculptures are placed at deliberate intervals on the Seaport Boulevard landscaped medians, creating a public art corridor stretching from Sleeper Street to East Service Road.
These multi-colored, monumental pieces create an entirely-new visual experience, one which is furthered by the presentation of Okuda as the Feature Artist at HUBWeek 2018 on City Hall Plaza.
The installation invites imagination as it explores some of Okuda’s favored themes – the tale of life and coexistence, and the mythological edge where the animal kingdom meets with the human world. “Art must be present in public spaces constantly and my mission is to transform these spaces in a way that further enhances the passerby’s experience. I aim at creating vibrant places that are filled with color and positivity, helping and hoping to change the lives of people. I want people to stop looking at the pavement and start looking up and around,” says Okuda San Miguel.
