Walking JR, New York

by | Jun 4, 2015 | Americas

Talented French artist, JR, is taking art to new places with his oversized urban installations.

JR’s most recent work was a collaboration with New York Times. The work gives voice to non-English speaking migrants arriving in our cities. 

Watch a time lapse of the installation here.

Here at TC we continue to love seeing new ways in which artists are taking to our streets and public spaces as blank canvases for expression, education and art (see also work by Australian artist Buff Diss). 

Explore more of JR’s provocative work on his website or follow his daily inspirations on Instagram.
