Strange Faces on Paris Walls (8 pieces)

I'm not sure whether to laugh or be frightened by these masks seen of the streets of Paris. Using plaster and acrylic, Gregos started to display painted replicas of his face on city walls over three years ago. The masks are applied with a super strong glue and cannot be taken off the wall, except with a hammer. Almost 90 faces have been placed in different tourist districts of Paris, where hundreds of people take pictures with them daily.
