Furry Art

Furry, mostly flat creatures creeping around the walls of your neighborhood! Now, before you go all crazy stop and notice is just art (true..."creeping around" but still art). Not sure what to make of it, mostly because it has an "animal-rights" feeling (a good thing) presented in an interesting and even a little violent way. Guilty for this is the group: Neozoon.
neozoon is a collective of female street artist that create wall art using old fur coats. The installations up cycle second hand furs cut into silhouettes of animals.
The pieces each use a different animal and a different fur each time. while most of their installations consists of silhouettes they have also recently begun exploring the third dimension, molding furs into forms that resemble animals such as monkeys. these fur forms are them places on trees and other obstacles in the urban environment, appearing to be playful zoo animals in the city.
