Artist JR was recently in Los Angeles to participate in MOCA’s “Art in the Streets” show, to exhibit at Phantom Galleries, and to pick up his TED Prize. Somewhere in there he managed to find time to put up a several new pieces of work around the city. JR’s art combines some of the aesthetic language of wheatpaste art with the size and feel of graffiti murals. His work uses human facial features on a massive scale and gives passers by the feeling that they are living among giants while completely changing the feel of a street. Check out some of JR’s work below.
