Rest In Peace, Pino.

Last night, when the Famous team went to the opening of the KunstRai in Amsterdam, we got the shock of our lives when we saw our favorite Sesame Street figure Pino lying on the floor. Dead. With his intestines all over the pavement.

Luckily, it turned out to be “just an artwork”. This work is made by visual artist Bart Jansen. He’s the same artist that made a flying helicopter out of his deceased cat. You can say whatever you want about his work, but it’s never boring and always draws the attention…

And it carries a message as well. With this work, Bart Jansen stands up for nature conservation. He explains, “A national park only counts when it’s threatened, by an oil leak or a highway. Now, the only bird of which we thought would never be threatened, is killed on the road verge of the advancing civilization.”
