New mural from Blu in Bologna, Italy

Street Art // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
We are patiently waiting for a new epic stop animation from Blu like the ones that blew everyone’s mind a few years back. Not to say that his murals aren’t certified homeruns. This new wall was painted on the XM24 building in Bologna, Italy, a space that supports and promotes social change, vegetarianism, and anti-fascism. You can see content relating to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings on this one.

Blu in Sardinia, Italy

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 10, 2012
We posted of Blu’s mural in Madrid the other day, and today another in Sardinia, Italy. This site-specific mural speaks directly on the island of Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and currently in an economic crisis. Blu painted a large pair of green hands pouring military planes, tanks, oil drums, and more into a beaker. Other beakers contain natural and man-made elements of the island, many government related, all in experimentation.
