"MUTO" - Amazing Wall Painted Animation by Street Artist BLU
First off, thanks to my roomie Hache for the heads up on this. "BLU" is a street artist out of Buenos Aires, Argentina. His work tends to hit a sort of politically striking tone and can be seen at his awesome online sketchbook. While there seems to be an abundance of street artists in the present day, what sets BLU apart are his experimental projects. Take for instance, this amazing animated street art video entitled "MUTO" that's been making its rounds on the interwebs. Basically, each frame of animation is a photo of a street painting he did. I'm assuming that for each progressive frame, the previous painting was painted over by the content of the next. I can't even imagine how long this thing to put together, but it's pretty damn amazing. Do yourself a favor and check it out:
