Italian artist Blu just threw down an amazingly huge mural on an abandoned building in Rome. Keeping it simple with just black on white, Blu depicts the obvious and not so obvious evils that plague today’s global society.
This is beautiful street art by an artist based in Rome who travels around the world to bring her work to the streets of many other countries. Alice Pasquini creates art about people and their relationships. We like. Right?
Traverse the winding roads of Rome with your penne. Jump across the East River with your pie. Take a tour of Tokyo with your rice. No we’re not delusional, we’re just totally hooked on City Plates, which bring urban dining to a whole new level.
