Mural Of Activist Greta Thunberg Going Up In San Francisco

Source: US News & World Report

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is staring down at pedestrians in the heart of San Francisco where an artist is painting a massive mural of the Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Argentine muralist Andres Iglesias, who signs his art with the pseudonym Cobre, is set to finish the artwork of the Swedish 16-year-old in Union Square by next week, SFGate reported Friday.

Iglesias told SFGate that he's donating his time to complete the work and that he hopes the mural helps people realize "we have to take care of the world." He had also painted a mural of Robin Williams in downtown San Francisco that has since been demolished.

Cobre said he was searching for a building for a new mural when environmental nonprofit oneatmosphere.org approached him about the project.

Paul Scott, the nonprofit's executive director, said he believed the artist would be perfect to create the first of what his group hopes will be a series of works honoring climate-change activists.

7. I'm gonna get flame broiled for this, but someone has to say it.

That murial is creepy looking. I find all murials of this sort, where the eyes of the subject seemingly follow you as you walk down the street, a little disconcerting.

I love her activism, not a fan of the murial.
