JR-artist

The real name of this artist is unknown. This Frenchman peels the layers of the cities to show the world who lives underneath the layers of doors, concrete buildings or underneath the plastic sheet of roofs. With enormous prints of people and a small message he reveals the suffering women in the favelas of Rio and lets Israeli meet Palestinian people with the same job. 

Open your eyes, look up from your screen, life is live and we must not forget who we have around us. You don’t have to be friends with everyone, but I strongly believe that we have more in common with the people we don’t know (yet) than we first thought. And we should all be acknowledged for being who we are. JR-Artist does that in his way and set up a community that helps you to print many portraits and show the people you think should be seen.
