Britain's famed guerrilla artist Banksy has launched a three-day exhibition in an industrial warehouse in Los Angeles, called Barely Legal.
"I just love his approach and his style and his wit," said Jason Bentley, a commentator on US public radio.
The exhibition's centrepiece is a live elephant, painted to look like pink floral wallpaper - a reference, it is believed, to weighty problems such as poverty.
Those attending the event were only given the address two hours beforehand, in true Banksy style.
Banksy uses the show to take a sideswipe at heiress Paris Hilton, who recently started a singing career. He has replaced hundreds of her UK CDs with doctored versions.
The 37-year-old Indian elephant has been made to stand in a makeshift living room, to blend in to its surroundings.
The exhibition also features footage of Banksy's most recent escapade - placing a life-size replica of a Guantanamo Bay detainee in a theme park ride at Disneyland.
