So for those who may or may not know JR, you might’ve seen some of his work plastered on the walls of MOCA near Little Tokyo. JR is a graffiti artist (whose identity is unknown). Although he’s not as elusive as Banksy, he still goes around the world and posts huge portraits of people on trains, roofs, walls and etc. JR calls himself an “urban activist” which can be seen in his projects Face2Face and Women Are Heroes. Right now JR’s doing a project called Inside Out where anybody can upload a portrait of themselves for a chance to get it enlarged and posted in the community.
