Shel Silverstein cuts loose in the work of BLU, and fulfills the dark undertones of his books of poems that we at Creative Tempest loved as kids. Limbs are lost like trees, heads are cracked open like eggs shells, and people are cannibalized and un-cannibalized like human Russian dolls, as BLU gives us a world in which humans are coolly taken apart like machines on a daily basis. BLU’s work asks us to literally look inside of ourselves, what you might find is not always expected, muscles, bone, blood, etc… It could be a colony of other tiny human beings, clockwork, or an empty void. For reminding us of our childhood and being so dang creepy BLU is Creative Tempest’s newest Artist of the Week.
