JR – Exposition Paris 2009 – Ile Saint Louis

JR is huge. Last year the French artist made his mark in Rio de Janeiro. Recently, JR has been putting work up all over South Africa and he’s not stopping. He is a man with a mission, and a crew of faithful volunteers to trek with him to the edge and aid him with his cause. Next time you blink expect to see him getting up somewhere fresh around the globe. This video showcases his recent work in Paris, everything from the production to the destruction of the work and the city’s reaction to the work. This video captures what the ephemeral world of street art is all about. This project is called “Women Are Heros” and all of the photographs are of woman during wartime. Check out JR’s website HERE.
