LONDON///STREET LIFE///JR GOES MASSIVE IN SOHO
Timed to coincide with his solo show opening at the LAZARIDES GALLERY's Greek Street location in London this Friday, October 3rd, Parisian photographer/street artist JR has gone huge in the streets of SoHo. Plastering numerous buildings with his massive black & white photographic images, most shot in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro for his recent hillside "28 Millimetres: Women" series, several of the photos include a toll free phone number posted beneath so the public can call in to hear the recorded story of the women depicted. In the mostly boring world of s0-called "street art," JR is a killer, making monster moves worldwide with an eye for social causes and an insightful depth that rightly separates him from his stencil-bound brethren.
