Letter A — Animation by Blu

This stop-motion animation video was created on-site, as part of THE STREETS OF EUROPE, group exhibition featuring new works and installations by Blek le Rat, Blu, Bo130, D*Face, Invader and Microbo.

During the week of installation prior to the opening, Blu worked day and night on this amazing installation. Documenting the step-by-step progress on his camera, the artist painted his figures moving along the walls, inside of the room in which he would be exhibiting, here at the gallery. The images were used to create the animated loop seen above. The film was projected onto one of the walls inside of the gallery’s project room, for visitors to enjoy, while the rest of the walls were left in varying stages of paint. In addition to the animated projection installation, framed drawings from Blu’s sketchbook were exhibited, as well.
