The young pseudonymous artist started his artistic career as a tagger in the metro tunnels of Paris. One day he found a left-behind camera in the metro and felt destined to photography. Despite the change of the medium, the play with the public space remained in the foreground of his creative work.

JR’s black-and-white photographs of comical grimaces are printed in outsized formats and are conspicuously placed at the streets.

Artfonds 21 AG acquired four works of the artist from the "Face2Face" series, which are compared to his street works relatively small-sized, but not less expressive.
