JR’s Inside Out Project In New York

November 7, 2013

I woke on my birthday in May this year to pouring rain but was determined to get a poster from the artist JR who was in Times Square for his Inside Out Project, and this was his last day in New York. JR ( his identity is a bit of a mystery) describes himself as a “photograffeur” and goes around the world installing his work in public places.I guess you could call him a type of graffiti artist. When we first saw him in Times Square, most of his posters were being pasted on the ground, then on buildings, which looked fantastic. So you line up ( long queues, but on this day I was early and only third in line) and have your photo taken in a photo booth in the back of a truck. It was all a lot of fun. Spots everywhere! Then after a few minutes a huge 90cm X 1.20 cm poster was “posted” out of the side of the truck. I sent mine home and it’s still in its cylinder! I will get it out and have it framed – maybe by my next birthday!!
You can follow JR on Instagram.
Here’s a good link.

      I’ll get it framed one day! At the moment it’s still in a cylinder…. I should check on it.
