JR Hits Tokyo

This is the front of the Watari Museum of Comtemporary Art  in Shibuya, in Tokyo, where French street artist superstar JR recently revisited with his well-publicized posters of faces of people from Japan’s Tohoku region. Tohoku was the scene of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster happened following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. JR became famous for putting up his street art images of people’s faces and eyes all over the world and eventually developed the “Inside Out” project in which participants have their photos taken by the artist and put up as street art. Participants then get to bring home their very own photo poster of their face. Lots of fun!
