http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Krishna : The answer to your question can be found here. In short, Krishna is an avatar (incarnation) of Vishnu who, as the god of preservation, is associated with water, which is required for the sustenance of all animals and plants (Vishnu is also said to sleep on cosmic waters). Water is often seen as blue, and so Krishna is depicted as blue.
