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, SFGate reported Friday.


Iglesias told 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.”


He had also painted a mural of Robin Williams in downtown San Francisco that has since been demolished.


Cobre said he was searching for a building for a new mural when environmental nonprofit approached him about the project.
