Street Art by JR

JR is a French artist who exhibits his work in what he describes as “the biggest art gallery in the world”, the urban landscape.

The highly private artist mounts enormous black-and-white photos, often without official permission, on to buildings in some of the world’s biggest cities.

JR wins Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) prize ($100,000) for his exhibition “Women Are Heroes” which has been shown on slum housing in Paris, bridges in Africa and the walls of favelas in Brazil.
