Papier-mache art installed in vacant lot

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles papier-mache art duo has installed a giant giraffe and two dueling men in a downtown vacant lot.

Calder Greenwood and his partner, who is known only as Wild Life, installed their latest creation late Thursday in an empty lot, creating the latest exhibit in a string that has included a family of sunbathers in an empty lot, deer in weeded areas and a surfer in the Los Angeles River, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Greenwood, who moved to Los Angeles from New York last fall, said he wants to call attention to things people pass every day but don't stop to appreciate.

"I'm inspired by downtown," he said. "What some see as an eyesore I think is beautiful. It's just getting people to look up and see what's otherwise invisible."
