Why I Choose Blu

What I hope to learn from my artist, Blu, is what is it in his works that, compared to other modern artists, is so empowering and allegorical. I want to learn to relationships between him and my world, and what influences he has had in his life.I am interested in Blu’s overall purpose of creating art in a modern world where it seems people don’t have time to stop and smell the roses of art. If he is so artistically talented, why does he choose to express himself illegally and almost unprofessionally? Blu has a cool spin-off of graffiti as we know it.Along with his murals he makes videos of time-based art, which are very creative and masterful. I choose Blu because he has a lot to offer, a lot of skills others do not have, and after seeing his paintings and his videos, I was sold.
