Born in 1983 in Paris, France
Lives and works between Paris, France and New York, USA

JR

Born in 1983 in France, JR works between Paris and New York. After finding a camera in the Paris metro in 2001, he traveled Europe to meet those who express themselves on walls and facades, and pasted their portraits in the streets, undergrounds and rooftops of Paris. The artist creates “Pervasive Art” that spreads uninvited on the buildings of the slums around Paris, on the walls in the Middle-East, on the broken bridges in Africa or the favelas in Brazil. People who often live with the bare minimum discover something absolutely unnecessary. In that Art scene, there is no stage to separate the actors from the spectators. JR exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors.
