The first entry in the series, 1964's The Pink Phink, (which was also his first appearance) featured the Panther harassing his foil, a little white moustached man who is actually a caricature of Friz Freleng (this character is officially known as "The Little White Guy" and/or "The Man" [1]), by constantly trying to paint the little man's blue house pink.

Nedko Solakov A Life (Black & White), 1999, black and white paint; 2 workers/painters constantly repainting the walls of the exhibition space in black and white (in rotation) every day for the entire duration of the exhibition.

Installation view in the 16th Biennale of Sydney 2008 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
