Having just received the TED Prize for 2011, JR is an artist who has received all the accolades for the right reasons. The French artist who is renowned for his large scale works has recently been making an impression in Los Angeles with his “Wrinkles in the City” project and this interview over the phone provides a great account for himself. With topics of discussion including his background as well as the INSIDE OUT Project, this makes for some worthwhile viewing/listening.
