Artist JR creates “pervasive art that spreads uninvited on the buildings of the slums around Paris, on the walls in the Middle-East, on the broken bridges in Africa or the favelas in Brazil”. SMA came across his Women Are Heroes street art in Kibera, Kenya and we wanted to share the overwhelming nature of JR’s large-format pieces. He covered 22,000 SF of rooftops with the eyes and faces of the women living in the Kibera slum. JR’s art is powerful, crossing political and international boundaries—earning him recognition, including the 2011 TED prize. We hope you enjoy looking at these awe-inspiring projects.
