Art Book : JR The Wrinkles of the city

Elected artist of the year by readers of French news paper Le Figaro beyond Pierre Soulages, acclaimed for his documentary Women are heroes, and Laureate of 2011 TED’s Prize, JR never stops travelling the world to paste his portraits on the planet’s walls.

Realized in Shanghai and in partnership with Magda-Danysz Gallery, The Wrinkles of the City is his last project. Published by Drago editions, the book recounts the intensity of this Chinese experience.

You will discover a unique project realized between Shanghai Biennale’s official support and the illegality of collages in crumbling places
