BLU – first CityLeaks Mural
Italian Street Art grandmaster BLU unofficially opened CityLeaks Festival in June with a stunning large-scale mural at Cologne´s Hansaring. Located at one of the city´s busiest spots, the menacing head of a faucet haired medusa stares down on the passing traffic. To its left we can glimpse Street Art duo Captain Borderline realizing their mural. In immidiate neighbourhood to Cologne´s largest cinema palace their wall reveals the business of moving pictures as collective brainwashing. See their work in time lapse.
Blu explains the title of his album “No York” …what a great way to let the masses know. We all have our stories and I can definitely relate to this because I used to think and dream about moving to New York (I’m a Chicagoan) all the time. All I ever bumped was New York shit and even though I never lived there, I always felt it was home. Crazy. Some of us are just really attached to this Hip Hop shit more than others. Big up Blu.
