Kyle and I had a friend visiting from New York this weekend so we decided to take her out to Abbott Kinney to wander through the shops and drink good coffee. As we parked on the street though I see this giant JR piece that you see at top and get a little giddy. If you’re not familiar with JR he’s a French street artist who’s been posting giant portraits on the sides of buildings and walls and anywhere he can get to. The world is his canvas and he uses it to the fullest.
Recently he won the TED Prize as well as $100,000 grant with which he’s starting the Inside Out Project, which you can hear more about in the TED Talk he recently gave. See the full video below.
