The street artist and photographer JR started out his artist practice in the streets of Paris. Using the pseudonym JR, the artist is keeping his identity hidden from the public. With this limited art edition, JR honours Charlie Chaplin, an icon of 1920s cinema. The pasting was created in 2021 in the heart of Paris, depicting Charlie Chaplin in the legendary scene from the film The Kid, which celebrated its 100th anniversary (in 2021) - in which Charlie Chaplin plays a tricky vagabond running from the police, accompanied by the kid; a character played by Jackie Coogan.
