    Art Brokerage: Blu Italian Artist: Like most street artists, Blu began painting graffiti with spray paint. He quickly gained recognition and fame by painting a graffiti series in the suburbs of Bologna. Over the next few years into the early 2000s, Blu's graffiti style transformed thanks to his growing use of house paint. He began to experiment with paint rollers and telescopic sticks. Not only was his graffiti art much larger, but his art conveyed a much more dramatic appearance. He quickly began to create huge human figures that were often sarcastic in appearance and resembled comic and video game art. Blu had the opportunity to travel to many destinations and was often invited to art festivals mainly in Europe but also in America. At these festivals, he painted with other great artists from the across the world, and even landed a spot in a festival called "Murales de Octubre" which was done in Managua, Nicaragua in 2005. He painted in this location a huge 100 foot long piece which instantly became viral on the internet and was named "Hombre Banano". It represented the ongoing fight in Nicaragua against big banana corporations using damaging pesticides. Listings wanted.
