JR Downtown

JR, this really great French street artist, has some new art work up in LA.  Basically he's been wheat-pasting the world like crazy, and LA's his most recent stop.  I hadn't heard until he did a show in Long Beach and postered up half the walls in town, but JR won a TED grant and has been spending it pasting up HUGE pictures of people on buildings/windows/billboards/etc for the past month.  It's really cool.  The "show" is called "Wrinkles of the City" and LA's only the most recent stop.  Before that was Shanghai and Cartagena.  I heard there are going to be 20 of them put up all over the area.
