The prolific French artist JR seems to never take a break, which we love! He continues with a new public series, "Wrinkles of the City”.
The follow-up to his last public exhibition, this special installation in Istanbul is pure and unapologetic in its illustration of the effects of gentrification and rapid urbanization. Appropriating real faces and denizens of the area, JR compresses overwhelming narrations and personal stories into a single image of a face. [via JR-art]
