- Author BiographyJR first garnered international attention at age 27 when he won the TED Prize in 2011, which raised the question, 'Could art change the world?', to which his response was the Inside Out Project, which has since drawn nearly 200,000 participants internationally. His in-your-face black-and-white close-up portraits - pasted on buildings and streets, trains, buildings and monuments - allow locals to have presence and show ownership of their surroundings. He has worked across the globe - in France, the UK, USA, China, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, Kenya, India and Cambodia amongst many more. His work has been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; the Rencontres d'Arles; and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
