Streets: Blu – “La Cuccagna” // Draw The Line Festival (Italy)

Last month in Italy, street art savant Blu made one of his increasingly rare appearances and painted an impressive new mural for the Draw The Line Festival. Entitled La Cuccagna, the mural is his second for the event in Campobasso (see 2011) which again features the Italian artist’s typical biting political commentary made painfully clear with his straight to the point imagery. The piece depicts metaphorically in a genius way how the “elites” of society live off the poor and how they pollute the environment through the […]
