One of my favorite urban artists, the Bologna-based painter Blu is known for his large-scale, surreal but always meaningful pictures in the public space. With his most recent mural artwork in Madrid he becomes part of the mural art trend I identified in the last days…If you don’t know what I mean, check out the new mural artworks in Lyon, Antwerp, Lisbon and Wroclaw!
His very playful and comic-style pieces often carry a political or moral statement, yet without being patronising. (about Blu)
In my opinion, Blu’s new work is a bit different than his previous creations. I don’t know whether I’m right or not, but it seems that his mainly black and white style made way for more colors. Also there are some more picture elements than usually. Nevertheless, it’s a nice mural, although I don’t really understand the deeper meaning. The reason for this could be that I don’t know the imaged logo…Maybe one of you could help me?
