MUTO by Blu

Invented mythical creatures and rare symbols evoking both whimsy and dread, magically and grotesquely transform themselves on Blu’s urban canvas in Muto. Six-legged men crawl like terrible spiders, and then crystallize, only to self-cannibalize and dissolve in a black-bloody mass, littered with severed heads. Heads bloom from dying mouths, and fallen teeth team and teeter like crazed dust bunnies. Geometric shapes become bodies, which give birth to grown men, who are peeled and plucked and dismembered, to then reassemble as new forms and characters. Flux is the only constant. Death and self-destruction repeatedly give way to regeneration, as figures and objects morph and sequentially breathe life into one another.
