“[Death Bear] never presses clients for details. As a bear, his job is not to make conversation.

You have to be ready to move on if you’re calling Death Bear….??

A shadowy, masked New Yorker relieves people of painful remnants of their pasts: love letters, photos, even underwear. To the man under the giant bear head, it’s performance art.??

“I was trying to make something that deals with more serious subjects, like grief, pain and tragedy,” said Hill, 32. “I’m interested in making art that can help in some clear-cut way, that’s not just abstract.”

Hill decided that the identity of a bear would provide the right mix of comfort and mystery. It would conjure up images of a cuddly teddy bear but look fearsome enough to ensure that retrievals were solemn events. He bought the Fiberglas bear head online and painted it dark brown.??Snout in front, eye holes over his own, rounded ears pointed skyward.??

So far, no clients have asked for their items back, perhaps the ultimate sign of the project’s success.

“I take it back to my cave and it is absorbed,” Death Bear said.
