BLU-porto-torres-sardinia-0

A few weeks ago, spent Italian street art legend BLU some time in Porto Torres, Sardinia, invited by the C.S.O.A. Pangea Posthudorra collective where he painted this impressive piece in the Villaggio Satellite residential part of town.
Depicting a large yellow head facing up and disintegrating in the middle in small puzzle pieces that morph, as they fall, into human figures for so fall back into place in the other half of the head.
Painted on a colourful gradient background which accents the main image, the mural talks about unity and our capacity to adapt to different situations. A glimpse of hope.
