Look At This! JR's New Shanghai Project Is The Best Art In The Streets Right Now

LookatThis_JR1 We've been following the artist JR for a minute now (check out this feature to get caught up), and he continues to kill it. The Frenchman just posted images of his new Shanghai project, titled Les Sillons de la Ville, or "The Wrinkles of the City." This collection of work is similar to past projects the artist has put up in Kenya, Brazil, and Cambodia, where JR takes images of the people of the city and pastes them up throughout the beaten-down slums and developing areas. JR just won the 2011 TED prize, for his work, so big ups to him. Hit the jump for more images of the project, via JR.
