Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed up in a playground in New York City’s Central Park on Monday night time.

Very well, not exactly — a shiny-red sculpture of Putin was erected there by French artist James Colomina.

Colomina took credit rating for the sculpture, which depicts Putin sitting atop a miniature war tank, in an Instagram article.

“This sculpture aims at denouncing the absurdity of war and at highlighting children’s courage when faced with violent, catastrophic predicaments brought on by some others,” wrote Colomina.

He posted several images of young children playfully interacting with the sculpture.

Colomina is recognized for his bright pink avenue sculptures, typically surreptitiously put in in public locations with no any prior warning. In April, he set up a further sculpture with an anti-war message: a little one soldier carrying a rifle that turns into a rose, positioned in France.
And very last year he erected two sculptures in his signature red in Berlin as commentary on the 32nd anniversary of the drop of the Berlin Wall, according to French-owned gallery group Galeries Bartoux.
Colomina’s installation arrives far more the five months into the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Russia has inflicted devastating attacks on Ukraine “not viewed due to the fact Globe War II,” NATO Secretary Standard Jens Stoltenberg explained on Thursday.
