Never mind the Banksy...

I recently came across the Italian graffiti artist Blu and thought I would share some of his globe trotting exploits with you. A lot of his work is much larger in scale than Banksy and he is not afraid to collaborate with other artists on his wall work. His drawings and his wall work are surreal with a pinch of humour and the stark cool whites he occasionally uses also work well against the sunny colours of the crumbling mediterranean buildings he paints on. He is also the first graffiti artist I have seen to experiment with animating his work and the results are pretty interesting. Click here to see a recent experiment from the Fame Festival with fellow artist David Ellis.
