Reviews

Press
"The art of protest... inspiring" -Metropolitan "The book is an inspiration for those trying to create socially engaged art and make a difference in marginalized communities." -Smithsonian Magazine "If Phaidon publishes a book about JR you can be sure it's a perfect book. Every page of this book shows the greatness of this artist, who continues to hide himself behind a pair of sunglasses and a hat, despite the reputation and fame he has gained." -Printed Paper "One of the most important street artists working today." -Stephen Colbert on JR "[An] imposing monograph... sure to be a popular feature on this year's Christmas lists." -TIME.com "The hippest street artist since Banksy." -The Guardian on JR "JR's projects are meaningful yet totally accessible. This has given him massive popular appeal but he's fervently principled. His image is so cool many brands would be chomping at the bit to link up with him but he even covers up the logo on his sunglasses." -Metro UK on JR "Putting a human face on street art, an audacious talent energizes public spaces and sparks cross-cultural conversation." -Architectural Digest on JR "Can artists change the world? I don't know. But if anyone is capable of doing so, then my money's on JR." -The Daily Telegraph
