Pretty cool...

I recently came across an amazing Italian graffiti / animation artist who goes by the name of Blu.

His art is fantastic but it was his animation Muto (Mute or Silent) that caught my attention (and maybe yours already too as 9 million people have viewed it on You Tube!!)

He created Muto whilst living in Buenos Aires in 2007 over the period of around 8 or 9 months.

Muto is created from of hundreds of paintings done on walls around the streets of Buenos Aires. Frame by frame it creates an animated mural over 7 minutes long. It's long, but worth a look!

I have also attached a couple of photos of his graffiti art – pretty cool stuff!
