The artist prints each image in his own darkroom, creating vivid and detailed images with brilliant colors. The resulting body of work is at once aesthetically beautiful and wondrous as it reminds us of how spectacular nature can be. If you will be in Los Angeles and would [...]

Tomorrow night (May 7th), the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York will be presenting a a collaborative showing between JR and José Parlá. Entitled The Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba, you can see from these photos that the works will be focused on their time in Cuba (covered), where they created stunning joint murals as part of JR’s continuing project of photographing senior citizens and pasting their portraits on the walls of city buildings. New Yorkers were already given a taste of things to come when [...]
As you have seen from our coverage of murals going up all over Berlin, JR (interviewed) was in town for a show. The Wrinkles of the City opened several weeks ago at Galerie Henrik Springmann with photographs, wheatpasted found objects, as well as a rare video installation from the French photograffeur. As you can see above, even one of the models he used for the street work made it to the opening. Check out more photos below… Photo credit: Positive-Propaganda. Discuss JR here.
Earlier this month, Bischoff Projects in Frankfurt hosted a new showing from Ryan McGinley entitled Running Water, What Are You Running From? In addition to large-scale editions of the New York-based artist’s photos, there were also some smaller prints that were arranged in a cluster against one wall. Take a look at a selection of installation shots as well as photos from the opening below… Photo credit: Purple Diary & Bischoff Projects. Discuss Ryan McGinley here.
Just this Saturday, AM joined JR (interviewed) and his crew at the renowned Tribeca Film Festival for the world premiere of Inside Out: The People’s Art Project in NYC. After the French “photograffeur” won the prestigious TED Prize and pledged his awarded funds to “turn the world INSIDE OUT”, he did just that in the two years since receiving the coveted accolade. JR and his crew traveled around the globe to inspire change through a unique portrait wheatpasting campaign, hitting over a 100 countries both remote and close [...]
JR, who we interviewed several days ago, has been working hard this past week (see Part I), pasting new work all over the city of Berlin for his Wrinkles of the City project and show at Gallerie Henrik Springmann. Just over a week since the French street artist arrived, he leaves the city having produced 18 different pieces in just seven days. As usual, much of the placement is sublime. Here are some photos below that JR sent us of a few of the finished walls. Discuss JR here.
It’s been a week since JR hit the streets of Berlin, working on almost twenty different walls around the city for his current project, Wrinkles of the City: Berlin, opening Wednesday night at Galerie Henrik Springmann. On day four, JR received a special visit from the elderly couple whose portrait is now pasted on the abandoned railway post office turned nightclub, Postbahnhof. The couple, now in their 80s, grabbed a brush and climbed the scaffolding to help with the pasting. Later, AM joined the French [...]

These pieces were then covered with Parlá’s urban calligraphy leading to an epic result that may have [...]
