Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada Paints Huge Wall Faces

Beautiful new wall faces by Cuban American contemporary artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada can be found in Argentina and Barhain! The artist, who is going to exhibit at the Guggenheim Bilabo next month, as was mentioned by RJ, is one of the founders of the New York Culture Jamming culture!

Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada started replacing the faces of cultural icons chosen by advertisers with the faces of anonymous people in the late 90’s. The idea was to question the controls imposed on public space, the role models designated and the type of events that are guarded by the collective memory. For that reason, Jorge was mentioned in Naomi Klein’s book No Logo, focusing on branding, and often making connections with the anti-globalization movement.

The temporary murals (the paint is washing away in the rain) he now created as part of Al Riwaq Art Space’s Alwan 338 festival in Barhain is a brilliant example of his skills! I wish ge could make it to Berlin one time…
