    i am extremely weirded out! my old roommates and i had a stuffed polar bear(roughly dog sized and not real) in our house named hogan, which in a drunken night was randomly doused with lighter fluid and lit on fire. the flames were on hogan’s back, in the exact same spot that is painted above. tooooo weeeeeirrd!

    The paintings are very thought provoking; the artist is attempting to draw attention to the planet’s problems. It is great art and with an important message to boot.

    Amazing works of imagination, flawlessly executed! The bear,fox and the gull, are just flat disturbing! I keep going back to the fox. That’s brilliant! The animals, and most people for that matter have gotten no vote in how things are going. These are great paintings, but they are also strong political statements.

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
