8-27-08 Blu – Letter A

Posted by Sean on August 27, 2008

Well, Shanoah, I’m more in the mood for weird animation than I am for weird music. That sand animation in The Seven Deadly Sins put me in the mood for more strange animation, and it’s very possible that’s that all you’re going to get out of me for the next few days.

Anyway, when I think weird animation, my thoughts instantly turn to the Buenos Aires art collective Blu, who are the only people that I know of who paint animated graffiti. It’s basically traditional stop-motion animation, but with walls and the sides of buildings for cels.

I’ve already showcased one of their efforts on this blog – the sprawling, city-spanning, globe-trotting MUTO, which took gods know how many days to finish and took over walls in Buenos Aires and in Baden, Germany. This one, Letter A, is a more modest effort and took up only one whitewashed wall room in New York’s Johnathan Levine Gallery in 2007. But it’s just as freaky and as clever as MUTO.
