Christo: Bulgarian-born artist who famously wrapped landmarks dies at 84 - BBC News
The Bulgarian-born artist, known for his monumental projects, dies at his home in New York.
He passed away of natural causes on Sunday, according to a statement posted on the artist's official Facebook page.
Christo, who always worked with his wife Jeanne-Claude, famously covered the Reichstag in Berlin and the Pont-Neuf in Paris with reams of cloth.
His artworks "brought people together" around the world, the statement says.
"Christo lived his life to the fullest, not only dreaming up what seemed impossible, but realising it," it reads, adding that the couple's art "lives on in our hearts and memories".
