Global Design | Street-artist JR’s “The Wrinkles of the City”

From the streets crowded streets of Shanghai to the vibrant boroughs of La Havana, Parisian street artist JR has showed us “The Wrinkles of the City.”

Originally started in 2008, according to JR’s site, “The Wrinkles of the City is a world-scale project aimed to be presented in various cities around the world where ‘wrinkles’, human as well as architectural, can be found.” From the finish of his first piece in Cartagena, Spain, JR has successfully put up masterpieces in Shanghai, La Havana, Los Angeles, and last week he finished a new piece in Berlin.

With a global approach to design and a compassion for humanity, he continues to effortlessly work on “The Wrinkles of the City” and other projects that are a voice for a generation of street artists and cultures across the globe.

Check out his latest piece in Berlin, as well as the other series within “The Wrinkles of the City.”
