Blu is Blue — Remix video

We don't usually post this sort of stuff but this is kinda funny, spotted it over on Ekosystem, it features Blu's work on the Palestinian wall getting remixed with the cheesy song Blue — Da Ba Dee!!

While we are on the subject of the Palestinian wall, on a more serious note we somehow missed the release last month of a new publication on the subject.

Against The Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine by William Parry is a stunning book of photos that captures the graffiti and art that has transformed Israel’s wall into a living canvas of resistance and solidarity.

Featuring the work of artists including Banksy, Ron English, Blu, Paul Insect, Sam3 and others, as well as Palestinian artists and activists, these photos express outrage, compassion, and touching humour. They illustrate the wall’s toll on lives and livelihoods, showing the hardship it has brought to tens of thousands of people, preventing their access to work, education and vital medical care.

The book is available for £15 on the Pictures On Walls website.
