French photographer, street artist and award winning filmmaker JR arrived in Los Angeles last week and featured his latest artwork entitled “Wrinkles of the City.”
The project showcased his art in the form of wall-sized black-and-white photos wheat pasted on buildings both big and small. The unique public art exhibit featured close-up views of people’s faces left the city’s street art admirers and aspiring photographers abuzz with excitement.
We scoured the L.A. streets -- from Venice Beach to Downtown Los Angeles -- this past weekend to photograph and map all the JR artwork.
