Description


The most comprehensive monograph on the enigmatic French street artist - now updated to include brand-new work

Filled with stunning photography, this extraordinary monograph charts JR's widereaching trajectory and a range of collaborative projects executed across the globe. Created in close collaboration with the artist, it features chapters on each of JR's major bodies of work - from 'Expo2Rue,' which launched his career as a street artist, to 'The Gun Chronicles: A Story of America' published in Time magazine in 2018. A specially commissioned graphic novel by comic artist Joseph Remnant and a survey essay by Nato Thompson tell JR's fascinating story.
