Italian street artist blu, likely best known for his complex graffiti animations, has transformed a former military warehouse in rome into an expansive and colorful mural, canvassing the building’s surface in over 25 unique faces.Nearly 50 windows spanning three storeys become the eyes of each quirky character, wrapping the porto fluviale — now a residential site — in an eclectic, rainbow range of painted personalities. banana-clad and leaf covered faces are etched onto the existing framework, canvassing the original architectural details. the vibrant spectrum of overlapping illustrations introduces a lively atmosphere to the street, where the daily routine of passers-by is interrupted by the unexpected introduction of public art.
