Art Beat: Blu

So I was writing a post on this last night after seeing a drop on Blu in Print Magazine and then browsing his website. Then on a few of my favorite hip-hop blogs today I see this video. Great minds think alike (no promo).

This is not the MC Blu, but in fact an Italian graffiti artist of the same name who has moved from huge wall murals to animated paintings in public spaces. As he says in the Print article:
"Cities are the perfect museums: They have a large public, they have giant, unused spaces, and they don’t even have budget problems."

They also now have huge unfolding animations running rampant from the streets to the walls.

Run dont walk. Watch it.
