Artwork by JR

 

Seen here is a huge wheatepaste artwork JR put up last fall on the façade of the La Voix Du Nord building in Lille, France. The artwork is part of JR’s ongoing ‘Unframed‘ series which began back in 2009.

The theme of the work is immigration and the source photo (which has been cropped and filtered) was taken in 1982 by Jean-Louis Mallet and is part of the Voix Du Nord’s photo archives. The project was done in conjunction with La Voix Du Nord and Lille3000.
