Bad Blue Beuys

This is a graffiti that's been here for quite some time now - in Teslina street between BP Club and Gallery Nova. And I believe that this location is not a coincidence, as the nearby Gallery Nova is dealing with the contemporary art and BP Club is a legendary jazz club. But to fully understand this graffiti one must know something about Joseph Beuys, an extraordinary German artist and also, the fact that Bad Blue Boys is the name of the supporters group of Zagreb football (soccer) team Dinamo. So, I see this as a huge irony in a way - but still think that Beuys would like the idea, especially taking in consideration the fact that probably most of the members of BBB doesn't have a clue who Beuys is.
