Commissioned by Okuda San Miguel, Theriomorphism was created seven years ago by Ink and Movement to disrupt
the art fair model, with the aim of putting artists and their work centre stage and before everything else.
The idea arose out of an opportunity for Okuda and his Ink and Movement team to bring a selection of the
most exciting international artists to Madrid, inviting them to work in-situ on collaborative pieces
exclusive to the exhibition. The event has become one of our biggest attractions, for both artists
themselves and members of the public looking for something a little bit different.
This year’s exhibition, Theriomorphism VII, included artists like Dulk, with his spectacular animal
hyperrealism; John Vochatzer, whose wild collages mix the corporeal and the macabre; Laurina Paperina, with
her ironic—and occasionally sadistic—paintings, brimming with pop references; and Joseph Marr, who will be
showing his sugar and resin sculptures. And of course, the event wouldn’t be complete without the magical
surrealism of its host, Okuda San Miguel.
