The Bulgarian-born conceptual artist, known for his installation art, wrapping and festooning mountains, museums and bridges, has died.
Christo first came to prominence in the 1960s, when he strung a giant curtain across a mountain pass in Colorado.
He also wrapped Pont Neuf in Paris in gauze and and zigzagged thousands of saffron-curtained gates throughout New York’s Central Park, among others.
Christo died yesterday at his home in New York, no cause was given.
He was 84.
