Blu Counterfeits Cash in Queens

09.28.09 Will Sherman

After teaming up with artist David Ellis on an arduous animated painting in Italy, Blu is solo and stateside, rolling out another massive mural in Long Island City. Commissioned by Deitch Projects, who also bankrolled Os Gêmeos’ recent mural, the Italian artist is peeling back the walls on the influential gallery’s studios to reveal a golden moneymaking machine. Watch Blu roll out the system of cash, cogs and wheels after the jump, or see his handiwork in person at the end of 44th Drive on the East River.
