Street Art Legends - BLU

Légendes du Street Art - BLU
Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.
We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.

BLU is a talented street artist from Bologna, Italy. BLU has been active since 1999.

He does massive murals all over the world. By doing what it likes, BLU tries as much as possible to highlight the message it sends. Art is important, not recognition. A name is nothing compared to the artistic merit of a painted wall. Many of his murals have never been signed, many of them destroyed by the artist himself, but his integrity is incorruptible. He believes in freedom of information and stands firm on his open source belief system.

BLU's aesthetic research is driven by a belief in an open source philosophy. His incredible work is a truth against the political events and other socialist controversies of today's modern era.
