Italian muralist recently added onto a mural by fellow friend Ericailcane in Bari, Italy, on what used to be a school. As Blu notes on his blog, “SOCRATE OCCUPATO was once a school, it was closed severals years ago because of structural problems three years ago it was occupied by a collective of great people who transformed it into a home for many african migrants.” And that pizza in Bari looks unbelievable.

At a border crossing between Spain (Europe) and Morocco (Africa, for those of you scoring at home), Italian (Europe) artist Blu just completed his newest bit of social criticism with this fantastic mural. Colored and shaped like the European Union flag, and showing huddled masses trying to enter the barbed-wire circle of stars, we think you understand where Mr. Bllu is going with this…

You cannot contain nor stop the capitalistic flood… such is the language of Italian artist Blu for his fourth mural in Buenos Aires, Argentina over the past few months. As BA Street Art describes it, the mural “features a river of money flowing through an enormous city of office blocks and high-rise buildings before engulfing the countryside and tiny houses below.” (Via BA Street Art)

Blu keeps the big year coming, with another poignant mural popping up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. (His second over the past month). The people of Buenos Aires Street Art (who do a great job) just posted a series of photos of the new Blu piece, noting, “six figures being roasted on a grill by the flames from a huge pile of burning bank notes. Argentines love to have barbecues (asados) and it looks like Blu has chosen a similar theme for his latest critique.” (BA Street ART)
