JR – Artist

JR is a French artist. He’s a street artist, meaning that he displays his artwork in the public arena for all to see, and yet he’s also a photographer, peace promoter, story teller and choreographer.  JR started out tagging the rooftops of Paris in his teens, purchased a camera and then switched his way of looking at life.  He is now taking the world by storm.  He has just finished creating a ballet called Les Bosquets in collaboration with the NY city ballet, has traveled to numerous countries distributing his wheat paste photos of people’s histories and stories to promote change and he just keeps plowing ahead. He is truly INSPIRING. Please check out his website here and then view the videos below. His 2011 TED talk explains it all…he really is quite charming…A Bolt of Blue - JR - ArtistA Bolt of Blue - JR - Artist
