100-year-old church is transformed into a psychedelic art-covered skate park

Now a second transformation is taking over, as artist Okuda San Miguel was commissioned to cover the walls and vaulted ceilings with bright, colourful, isometric paintings.

Miguel began work on the mural masterpiece at the beginning of December. The design features faces, geometric skulls and psychedelic wildlife.

The project was a great way to breathe life back into crumbling architecture, and the result is something that both art enthusiasts and skateboarders alike will worship.

CEO & Founder at Psychedelic Society and www.sociedelic.com. I created this community in 2013 shortly after finishing high school and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :)
