I stumbled upon Blu murals on my last two trips to Europe. While I love Blu’s mind-blowing wall-painting animations like Big Bang Big Boom and Muto, it’s cool to come upon his still images—and remnants of his animations—on facades around the world. Especially when you’re not looking for them…
City: Berlin // Neighborhood: Friedrichshain
A mural from across a parking lot. Here’s a time lapse video on how it was made.
The first mural, across the River Spree, taken from the Oberbaumbrücke.
A wider shot showing an adjacent mural.
A massive pink man, made of many little men, hiding next to the Oberbaumbrücke.
The massive man of tiny men, up close.
Location: Lisbon // Metro Station: Picoas
