Blu: Mural at the Ribera del Manzanares

Men in suits going in a circle, reaching into each other’s back pockets, stealing each other’s wallets.  We ran into this eloquent mural by Italian street artist Blu as we walked along the Ribera del Manzanares (shores of the Manzanares river) yesterday.  Blu did this piece back in August of 2010, as one of several works facilitated by the Oficina de Gestión de Muros, an office that connects street artists interested in doing pieces in Madrid with neighborhoods and owners of walls interested in urban interventions.
