BLU X MUTO

I was reminded this morning how much I used to OBSESS over the street artist BLU… and it’s been TEN YEARS (at least) since MUTO came out!

Before being a makeup artist was even a concept for me… I wanted to be a filmmaker/animator and so this work tickles so any fancies for me! Street art is only slightly more permanent than body art and how can you NOT be inspired by street art. Seems to be saying a hell of a lot more than a superhero suit painted on a naked body yet somehow judged as equally as provocative.

This colab with David Ellis is also so bloody gorgeous.
