We haven’t heard much recently from Italian street muralist Blu since his series of works in Buenos Aires earlier this year (here, here & here), but with his penchant for traveling and big walls, you know it was only a matter of time before his distinct imagery showed up somewhere in the world. This newest piece has been completed in Morocco near the border fences that are the separation barriers between the North Africa country and the Spanish city of Melilla. As this area is has been the site […]
Masterful street muralist Blu made the most of his time in Argentina apparently. Despite already completing two large murals (here & here) in Buenos Aires, here is news of yet a third large politically charged piece. For this wall, the anonymous Italian painter renders an imposing corporate looking city put together with large buildings that looks to have sprung a leak, spilling out a torrent of money that wreaks havoc on the surrounding small towns and environment. More photos via Buenos Aires Street Art and the […]
After bringing you photos a new political and provocative mural form Blu about a week ago, here is another set of pics of another mural painted by the Italian street savant in Buenos Aires. This time around, the piece on the side of a building depicts an an image of the globe slowing disintegrating like a jigsaw puzzle with the pieces being interconnecting humans.

For fans who can’t get enough of his work, you are in luck. Italian street savant, Blu, has just painted another politically charged mural (you may remember a recent timely wall he created for Greece) in Buenos Aires featuring a mass of people blindfolded by colors of the Argentine national flag. In the back, there appears to be a dark figure wearing a presidential sash and a suit and tie. More photos after the jump from BA Street Art.
Serial collaborator Ericailcane has instead opted to trade his Italian neighbor Blu for Spanish street art crusader Escif. Ironically, Blu and Escif collaborated together in Valencia on an impressive tandem mural back in July for Arquitecturas Colectivas. Quite clearly, the three artists share a tight bond and mutual respect for one another. With Escif’s recent efforts at the FAME and Nuart festivals, it’s hard to deny he more than belongs in the same sentence as the other two outdoor icons. This piece from several months […]
As Greece moves towards an inevitable default, likely pulling the rest of the world into a double-dip recession, Blu lands in town to give his special commentary on the subject. There seems no end to his Euro road trip as he has made his way to and from countries and cities like Italy, Bologna, Palestra, Jesi, Krakow, Poznań, Fabriano, Cologne, Grottaglie, Valencia, Italy, and Spain again. Now, he hits another home run with this poignant new mural that proves once again a painting is worth a thousand […]
The man never stops. And for that, we are grateful. After a quick stop in Valencia, Blu has since journeyed north into the heart of Spain to partake in Avant-Garde Urbano in the cozy town of Tudela de Navarra. With signature iconography and social commentary, the ubiquitous Italian artist kicks things off at this inaugural street art event, the likes of which have sprung up at an unprecedented rate throughout Europe as a tool to attract tourists and bring money into the community. The festival […]
After a machine-like summer which saw Blu continue banging out thought provoking murals in the Eurozone in a near never ending stream of projects that started back in March (see Italy, Bologna, Palestra, Jesi, Krakow, Poznań, Fabriano, Cologne, Grottaglie, Valencia, Italy), the Italian street maestro has apparently worked his wizardry on another massive wall in Valencia, Spain. The coastal Mediterranean community had served as ground zero for a nice tandem collaborative effort with Escif back in July for the Arquitecturas Colectivas street art event. This time Blu […]
Continuing to tear through Europe (Bologna, Palestra, Jesi, Krakow, Poznań, Fabriano, Cologne, Grottaglie, Valencia, Italy) at a torrid pace since March, Blu has hit up his home country again at the Draw The Line Festival in Campobasso, Italy. This new wall caused some initial controversy, of which the Italian street artist is not unfamiliar with after the MOCA incident, and features his views on war and a biting rendition of how the military produces their soldiers.
