Blu Mural in Sardinia, Italy

Street Art // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Yesterday we posted of Blu’s mural in Madrid, 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.

New Blu Mural in Madrid

Street Art // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
An influential force in the world of street art, Blu recently completed this provocative new mural in Madrid, Spain. The imagery depicts a train made up of army tanks, cars, shopping carts filled with consumer items, oil barrels, and money being shoveled into the hybrid house engine, excelling towards the edge of a cliff. The artist’s grim view on our current state of affairs is haunting and undeniably true.  

Blu in Ordes, Spain

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We can only assume that Italian muralist, Blu, is a healthy man with a good juicer. For the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain, Blu painted this odd to healthy eating and vegetarian lifestyle. Thousands of veggies and fruits, all getting ready, excited, to jump into the blender of life. A good smoothie is born. 

Blu in Morocco

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Our May 2012 Public Art special issue features a few works from Italian muralist Blu captured from our travels in Europe last year, and we just saw that the artist was in Morocco to paint a new mural near a border crossing in the North African nation. That appears to a European Union colorway on that wall, no?

New Blu Wall in Melila

Street Art // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
The town of Melila is geographically near the borderline of Spain and Morocco.  We posted yesterday about Escif’s newest work here and the issues involving African refugees persistent attempts to cross the borderline. Blu who has been rather quit recently is also in town and created this very simplistic imagery with a strong statement.  He used the European Union flags logo substituting barbed wire for where the stars should be.

Notebook Drawings by BLU

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 21, 2012
We were checking BLU's website last night after finishing a little project with FAME Festival, and noticed he had updated his site with new notebook drawings. Because we are used to seeing BLU's drawings becoming multi-storied political commentary pieces, seeing his work on this scale is a great reminder of how talented the Italian artist is.
