JR first garnered international attention at age 27 when he won the TED Prize in 2011, which raised the question, 'Could art change the world?', to which his response was the Inside Out Project, which has since drawn nearly 200,000 participants internationally. His in-your-face black-and-white close-up portraits - pasted on buildings and streets, trains, buildings and monuments - allow locals to have presence and show ownership of their surroundings. He has worked across the globe - in France, the UK, USA, China, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, Kenya, India and Cambodia amongst many more. His work has been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; the Rencontres d'Arles; and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
"The art of protest... Inspiring." -Metropolitan "The book is an inspiration for those trying to create socially engaged art and make a difference in marginalized communities." -Smithsonian Magazine "If Phaidon publishes a book about JR you can be sure it's a perfect book. Every page of this book shows the greatness of this artist, who continues to hide himself behind a pair of sunglasses and a hat, despite the reputation and fame he has gained." -Printed Paper "One of the most important street artists working today." -Stephen Colbert on JR "[An] imposing monograph... Sure to be a popular feature on this year's Christmas lists." -TIME.com "The hippest street artist since Banksy." -The Guardian on JR "JR's projects are meaningful yet totally accessible. This has given him massive popular appeal but he's fervently principled. His image is so cool many brands would be chomping at the bit to link up with him but he even covers up the logo on his sunglasses." -Metro UK on JR "Putting a human face on street art, an audacious talent energizes public spaces and sparks cross-cultural conversation." -Architectural Digest on JR "Can artists change the world? I don't know. But if anyone is capable of doing so, then my money's on JR." -The Daily Telegraph "[A] lavish portfolio of JR's public art."-American Photo "JR's work is on an epic scale."-Will Gompertz "A perfect gift for artistically inclined activists, socially conscious artists and slacktivists at large."-Quartz "JR is an inspiration and his book is a must-have for those who are moved to be the change that want to see in the world.
