While we last heard from him last month in Sardinia, Blu is back in Rome where he recently finished working on this brilliant new piece.
This piece is telling the story of a dramatic episode which occurred in the San Basilio neighborhood (in the suburbs of Rome). In September of 1974, a militant of the extreme left, Fabrizio Ceruso, was killed during a clash between police and squatters.
The response of BLU is yet another intervention rich in metaphors, symbols and allegories, the gigantic figure of the saint who gave his name to the district, bursts hypothetically in the same accompanied by the police that we see turn into pigs and sheep, in contrast citizens and the neighborhood together and posted a mo ‘urban guerrilla and civil resistance.
Blu painted yet another fantastic piece rich in symbols and metaphors. The giant saint ( which gave his name to the district) shows up with the police which are starting turning into pigs and ships.
Take a look at more detailed images on this masterpiece after the break and keep your eyes peeled on StreetArtNews for more updates from Mr Blu.
