Graffiti art: Not just Banksy anymore

Yes, Banksy is great, but as my nephew Witt tells me, so last year. (He’s works at the Walker Art Center, so I believe in his art–and musical–taste).

I came across this graffiti art titled MUTO, by the artist Blu recently; from South America, I think, or just doing work there. What I love about his work is the sheer magnitude of it. What begins as a small, one-dimensional picture on a brick wall evolves into something that folds into itself, creeps into corners and dark passages, interacts with objects and passersby. Watch this video he made, it’s worth it. And post here! Let me know what you think
