Check the big picture here Coming straight out of Italy and into your heart is wall dazzler Blu. Did that sound like the a trailer for a feel good film? In a way it should since Blu's work makes you feel good. It makes you feel good to know that there are street artists out there keeping things innovative. And with 30 ft. high heads made of hundreds of smaller naked people, innovative is this guy's middle name (or however you say innovative in Italian). His current project, Megunica, is a documentary video and illustrated diary of Blu's travels through Central and South America, gauging the inspiration and effect on his work of unplanned travel through these regions. His murals, utilizing a semi-cartoonish style, are intricate, insightful, and inspirational. New styles of street art are slowly gaining popularity in the main with help from talented, experimental muralists like Blu who are out spreading the gospel.
