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.

SFGate reports Friday that 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.

Iglesias tells 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.”

Why? I swear people do this just to see what kind of damage and vandalism will be done to them.

They should have gone more abstract with the art-style, this is way too much lol

Is it weird to do this when it meant to just look like her without her consent? Idk how to feel about it. Maybe I’m overthinking it.

There is another Mural of her already in Bristol which i think is better...



Which i find is the route they should have went with in terms of art style. This really gives a message to the public....

Greta Thunberg doesn't need worshipping, she needs you to listen to scientists and do something against climate change.

This looks like that thing from Ghostbusters. I think we can do better murals for Greta than having a giant staring head plastered at the side of a building. There's something creepy about that regardless of whoever it is. Instead of a literal painting of her head how about something more symbolic.
