A colourful mural within a converted Church’s indoor skate park

A historic church in the Spanish municipality of Llanera (Asturias) is no ordinary place for parishioners. Instead, the site has been made into a place of pilgrimage for athletes after its conversion into an indoor skate park.

At the start of December 2015, artist okuda san miguel began his work on a monumental, colourful mural which now canvasses la iglesia skate’s vaulted ceilings, and window-lined walls. A vibrant display of faceted faces, geometric skulls and psychedelic wildlife encompasses the space overhead, wrapping all interior surfaces in a mesmerizing artwork. This piece of art was created in collaboration with red bull, ‘kaos temple’ forms a sanctuary for both skateboarders and art lovers alike.
