Eat your heart out, Pixar!
Watch this amazing animation created by an artist photographing a very long series of his murals. The artist's name is Blu. He is an Italian graffiti artist, though it appears this series was painted in Brazil.
It's a big deal to paint a mural. There's a lot of paint to spread around. It's a superhuman feat to paint thousands of them needed for this not-insignificant animation. Even more remarkable is the wonderful whimsy and creativity displayed by the final work.
My life is enriched and my spirits lifted when someone spends such a huge amount of time to complete such a non-comerical work -- just for the pure beauty of it.
Thank you, Blu.
To give you some sense of what is involved in painting murals -- just one!-- at this scale, here is Blu at work.
