Laurence Valliéres - Cardboard Animals

Canadian artist Laurence Valliéres makes these incredible cardboard animals -- some of which seem to enjoy destroying vehicles. 

IncorporApe (see image #1) presents some of these such animal hooligans. Built at Fresh Paint Gallery in 2013, the structure of the car is made of wood, but the apes are made of cardboard. Friggin apes. Even cardboard ones'll roll your car and tear your face off. *shiver* 

Another such animal + vehicle sculpture was made in Toronto for Nuit Blanche (see image #2 below). It's title is: "There is an elephant in the truck." I love the artist's description of its purpose: "to yield the overall impression that the cardboard sculpture is too large for the truck." Consider the impression yielded. (PS: I wonder what the guy on the bike is thinking.)

Finally, this amazing silverback gorilla (see image #3 ... obvz) is just chillin in a gallery not ruining any sort of vehicle whatsoever. I want to touch it, too. ... How much are flights to Montreal?
