BALU / Street Art

Balu is an urban art artist born in the Basque country and settled in Barcelona. Within urban art the discipline that exercises is that of the stencil. Using this technique, he usually makes portraits, many of them, relevant characters, seeking to capture the citizen’s attention. He has the need to translate his work on the street. It uses disused and forgotten spaces as support, giving them a new meaning and thus changing their aesthetic value.
