So as 2010 draws to a close the Stylesight graphic team thought it would be good to highlight a street artist who has been pushed to the forefront of the media after scooping the 2011 Ted Prize.
Although we reported his Ted win we felt it was worthy of another mention on the Warning! Graphic Content blog. JR is a Parisian street artist/photographer who uses his environment as the gallery for his large scale photographic studies. With comparisons to the likes of Banksy and Shepard Fairey JR is definitely one to watch for 2011.
To get a real feel for this incredibly inventive and daring artist watch the Ted video link below. In this interview we see how his work has evolved from project to project and how his attention grabbing artworks interact with the local communities.
Warning! Graphic Content returns on the 4th January – Happy Holidays!
