I am totally in love with the work of BLU right now. Blu is an Italian artist, who works mostly in murals and urban landscapes. His work is characterized by larger than life figures that tease the eye with perspective and size. The things he can do with white paint is amazing.

This short film by Blu is amazing. An animation painted on public walls in Buenos Aires and in Baden, BLU’s work surpasses simple grafitti, and turns the cityscape itself into a giant morphing canvas. The entire effect is breathtaking.

BLU’s most recent project has been a larger-than-life mural on the exterior of the Tate London, aptly entitled “Headquarters.”
