The artist



JR was born in 1983 in Paris. In 2001, he started photography and decided to travel across Europe to meet the artists who expressed themselves in the street. Between 2004 and 2006, he produced his first series of collages, entitled "Portraits d’une génération", portraying the inhabitants of the Bosquets housing projects. At the time, riots broke out in the suburbs.
