JR in Times Square, NYC

by | Apr 30, 2013 | Americas

As part of the Times Square Public Arts Program, French artist JR has recently used street art to show the faces of the New Yorkers and tourists who pace through the city centre. JR is well-known for using faces in order to connect people with what seem to be ‘disconnected places’. Having completed similar projects in Palestine and Israel and the North Pole, “Inside out New York” attempts to portray an inclusive image of NYC’s public places, as opposed to a series of spaces that people simply drift through.
