French artist BLO, who is also one of the members of the well known DMV crew, started his career as a graffiti writer and street artist in Lyon, were one of his main intents was not only the necessity to paint, but also to use it as a form of destruction and vandalism. Even though over the years BLO has concentrated more on producing art that fits in a gallery space, not only concerning the medium but also contextually, instead of for the urban landscape, this raw and angry spirit from his beginnings is still reflected in his style of putting the lines, which is very loose and full of motion. His recent work is often coined by christian iconography such as images of virgin Mary and the Christ child, memento mori displays and also occult symbolism of other religions as much as by other well-known artists like Egon Schiele and Hans Bellmer.
