JR’s practice lies at the intersection of photography, street art, film, and social practice. The artist is best known for his site-specific public interventions, which usually feature large-scale, black-and-white photographs overlaid on building façades, stadium seats, and a variety of other architectural and landscape features. His practice often comments on such issues as incarceration, immigrant rights, and poverty—yet JR infuses his work with joy and hope for change. He has exhibited in cities including New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin, and Seoul.
