Going Viral with countless hits on YouTube and Vimeo to his own fan page on Facebook, he has even been commissioned by clothing company Zara for a t-shirt design. In fact although initially used for one MTV ident done with co creator Matt Pyke, Mister Furry has been commissioned again and again. His latest guise being showcased as part of an incredible opening exhibition at Paris gallery La Gaite Lyrique where he transformed into different versions of himself.
