We won't speculate to what Blu may be trying to convey with his new mural in Krakow, Poland but he definitely wants someone’s attention.

Italian muralists and collaborators, Blu and Ericailcane, just finished another great collaborative piece in Erica's hometown of Bologna, Italy. Ericailcane, the cover artist of our subscriber cover in March 2010, adds his signature animals while Blu adds a cage and added elements.

We just noticed on BLU's blog that the Italian muralist just completed a new piece in Jesi, in the northeast of Italy. BLU finished the piece over the Easter Holiday, which seems appropriate as BLU's character is represeting religion and messily slurping a plate of spaghetti on its head.

The Italians just do it better. Anytime BLU or Ericailcane do a wall it becomes news because they are talented duo leading the way in large-scale European mural work. The two just teamed up again for a piece in Milan called the "Skating Team" mural. More views after the jump . . .

Italian artist, BLU, is set to release a new print through Studio Cromie in the coming weeks. Most of the time, we won't just report on any print, but this one is based off of the fantastic mural BLU did in Rennes, France in late 2010. More information after the jump . . .

Italian street artist BLU, who has made some of the most impressvie and genre defining timelapse videos, just released two new wall loops from an abandoned factory in Italy. (Okay, we assume Italy). As BLU writes, "trying some ideas for the next animation...". We look forward to whatever and whenever that is. Watch after the jump . . .

We haven't seen much public work from Italian aritsts Blu or Ericailcane since both were in California in the early Fall 2010. Ericailcane was in San Francisco for a solo exhibition at FIFTY24SF, and Blu was in Los Angeles where that thing with the mural for MOCA happened. You may have heard the story.

We are all a bit obsessed with Blu at the moment. He has been one of our favorite artists of the past 5 years, one of the leading and influential muralists and animation specialists in Europe, if not the world. With Blu currently in the news, what a great time to release his first DVD collection. There are some goodies inside...

We trust the opinion of Jaime Rojo & Steven Harrington of Brooklyn Street Art, and they just created a Top 10 list (everyone loves a Top 10 list) on the Huffington Post of the top street art moments of the decade. You have Blu, Banksy, Swoon, Faile, Revs, Dan Witz, and a few other mainstays on the list. More after the jump . . .

We want to preface this post with the fact that we don't know the whole story, but it looks like Italian artist Blu, one of the rising talents in the international art world especially in terms of mural work, was invited by the MOCA to paint a large wall in conjunction with next Spring's major "Art In the Streets" exhibition. And right after Blu painted the piece in LA, it got buffed. More after the jump . . .
