Blu is an anonymous Italian mural painter. His works are recognized by their charming drawing and an elegant taste of sarcasm, as he criticises contemporary society, cities, pollution and other traits of modern civilization threatening the nature.
This is one of Blu’s murals painted in Belgrade, Serbia, where the city is literally eating away its green.
