Blu & David Ellis

After learning more about William Kentridge's process today during presentations, I remembered an artist that works very similar to Kentridge's stop motion/layering/drawing, erasing, and re-drawing effect. BLU has that same feel of the history of a drawing before it but he uses larger canvases and mediums like paint and graffiti on buildings and urban streets. I love how his drawings animate because they are re-drawn, re-photographed, and also physically travel throughout the buildings and city.

** Check out more work by BLU here and info about the artist he collaborated with in the video above (David Ellis) here. **
