Blu, a street artist who is not afraid of risk, his work is as incredible as his techniques. Little is known of this unique guy, his work is now all over the world, and it’s easy to spot.
He first made a name for himself in 1999 with his graffiti in Bologna, his native city. In 2001, he starts to use house paint and begins working on house walls. Most of the time, portraying human figures in a sarcastic or dramatic way. In 2004, was the year he was spotted by art gallerries all over the world… Today he’s still managing a low profile.
You can easily find him on walls in Managua, Nicaragua, ‘Hombre Banano’, Buenos Aires, Mejico DF, Guatemala, San José, Costa Rica, Sao Paulo, Long Island, New York, Camden Town, London…
In 2007 and 2008 he lived in Buenos Aires, what he saw and soaked in, came out in an exceptional video, ‘Muto’ …
Here goes his unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life… and how it could probably end.
