This has to be seen to be believed.
This street artist named Blu takes street art to another level, painting hundreds of pictures on walls to create building-sized stop motion animations, like the video above called Big Bang Big Boom.
It shows an interpretation of the history of the world since the big bang, evolution, the rise and fall of the dinosaurs and humanity. And it is unbelievably creative.
Much like other street artists like Banksy, it appears he wants his art to do the talking rather than be famous. His Wikipedia page notes he’s Italian, and that the video above was shot over several months in Argentina and Uruguay.
Big Bang Big Boom was not his first breakthrough video with this stop-motion style. An earlier video filmed in Buenos Aires in 2008 called Muto, shown in the video below, is what helped bring him to the masses.
