Dubliners have spotted colorful renditions of a bearded Robin Williams in several spots of the Irish capital, Breaking News reports.

The artworks come courtesy of local street artist Pan Cooke. He initially completed the portrait and posted a picture on his Instagram account on August 7, less than a week before the much-loved Hollywood star committed suicide on August 11. “Very spooky coincidence,” he said on his Instagram account.


According to the website, the face was originally part of a series of six portraits, and the original sketch was published on Cooke’s Instagram account six months ago.

Williams’ wife Susan Schneider has revealed that the comedian was suffering from the early stages of Parkinson’s disease at the time of his death.
