Rome ‘hood gets a brilliant technicolour makeover by street artist Blu

If only every neighbourhood had the Blu treatment! Blu, an Italian street artist, has really made his mark on his new home in Rebibbia, Rome.

Taking his incredible penchant for murals and stepping it up a notch or two, this artist shows us exactly what he can do when armed with a few cans of paint and a 7-story residential building. His technicolour world comes to life and revitalizes the neighbourhood like you wouldn’t believe.

This is truly remarkable, but even more so when you see Blu at work – pitched up by the side of the building hand painting every single element. That’s dedication.
