November 2009: MUTO by BLU

This amazing film by the Italian artist BLU is “an ambiguous animation painted on public walls” filmed in Buenos Aires (Brazil) and in Baden (Germany). An amazing technical and visual feat, the film comes across less as an animated film than as the documentation of a painting that never stops developing and changing – although more than one beautiful image is lost to the further development of the piece itself. BLU has a pretty interesting website that invites one to peruse and look around, but it supplies relatively concrete info about the man himself, who obviously gets around a lot as a street artist. Some fine examples of his murals – including the big one here in Berlin that I often go by when riding the subway – can be found here.
