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.

Highly imaginative and packed with meticulous detail, Liqen’s newest mural in Ponta Delgada, Azores for the Walk & Talk festival is an exceptional display of the artists talent.The Spanish painter created a large hybrid assembled space vessel with a range of mechanical elements and a face for its bow.

Phlegm @ Bloop Festival

Street Art // Thursday, August 09, 2012
UK-based muralist, Phlegm, recently completed this 4 story high mural in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza for The Bloop Festival.  The walls show two mechanical arms operating each other by the pull of a string with the artist’s signature characters doing a little maintenance.  Hopefully the artist was able to take a dip in that pool next door after baking in the sun painting this piece.

New Blu Mural in Madrid

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.
