This post is the first in a series where we invite you to question, what is art? A well-trodden debate it may be but as boundaries become forced and art-forms fused, this question circumnavigates the industry.
Bologna street artist Blu, in a collaborative video with David Ellis, forces the viewer to question the medium of street art as they push stop-motion animation and street art into an ephemeral arena.
In a world where we believe art to be timeless, an item intended to be preserved and protected; Blu forces us to question what art really is. In Blu’s world the motion-painting is captured via film transforming his thoughtful ingenuity into a work of fleeting genius.
