Wrinkles of the City: Dope JR & José Parla Murals in Havana

Wrinkles of the City: Dope JR & José Parla Murals in Havana

Two of my favorite urban artists, namely Mr 2011 TED Prize winner JR and Mr next level tagging José Parla, recently teamed-up for the next part of the Wrinkles of the City Project – this time they created murals in Havana!

For Wrinkles of the City, JR usually portraits elderly people, representing the memory of the city he picks for its interesting past, talks to them and pasts these portraits, printed in monumental sizes, in the very same city in various places that inspire JR and also represent the city heritage. This time, José Parla goes along with him contributing his amazing abstract typography skills. The combination of the large scale portrait photography works of JR and the stunning calligraphy art of José Parla is just beautiful and results in amazing eye-catchers with even more impact than their both works by itself does already. Take a look and share your love!
