OK. Do you have any reliable sources that demonstrate notability? Like, actual webpages that mention him, rather than websites that prove the existence of some folks you assert mention him. Also, please sign your posts with four tidles (~~~~), and don't repost the deletion tag notification itself everywhere, it just clutters up the place. Ian.thomson (talk) 22:28, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I have a wikipedia article on street art where the name of Blu is cited

and also the Tate Gallery webpage

and also the Deitch Gallery webpage. Deitch Gallery is one of the most important New York contemporary art galleries —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefano.questioli (talkcontribs) 23:01, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Please read the reliable source guidelines. Wikipedia is not a source, it is a summary of sources. For the page, use that instead of just citing "" (which doesn't tell anyone anything). What you need is something like a magazine or newspaper article about him, or a book about him. Blogs are not accepted, anyone can create those. Also, please sign your posts with four tidles (~~~~).

I already corrected the tate gallery link on the article and I can also use BBC, Swindle Magazine, Juxtapoze, etc (on paper) See the BBC on line

Plus I added at the end of the article a detailed bibliography about Blu

Do you want a web link to a scan of an article about BLU? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefano.questioli (talkcontribs) 23:18, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the BBC meets WP:RS. Really, just skim through the page. Legal copies of magazine articles are good additions. Ian.thomson (talk) 23:28, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

How can I remove that link about notability? Blu's notability is clearly stated by the references I added and by the thousands of article about him published everywhere! Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefano.questioli (talkcontribs) 21:42, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Mural Cuvrystraße[edit]

The mural prominently shown as a photo was overdrawn with black paint on the night of the 11th to the 12th of december. It was done in consent with Blu. Blu's statement: "First" statement released by people close to him: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:02, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

About the MOCA mural censorship[edit]

Probably not a suitable source, but the MOCA Media Relations statement it reproduces might be able to be sourced elsewhere. [1] Tiptoethrutheminefield (talk) 16:57, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
