Public art loves the internet: reaching a wider public.

October 21, 2009

Public art by it’s nature is accessible to everyone.  But what if your favorite public artist makes work halfway across the world?  All I have to say is thank goodness for the internet and it’s ever-humbling ability to bring hidden walls from around the world right into my living room.

I came across this amazing animation by mural artist and film-maker Blu quite some time ago.

Barely more than a month ago, Blu collaborated with David Ellis on this equally beautiful piece at Fame Festival in Italy (check out the work from 2008 as well!)

I am so in love with this work not just for it’s visual sensibility, but for it’s performative quality.  The movement and visible decision-making fascinates me.  Wonder how much a ticket to fly to next year’s festival would be……
