JR is an anonymous photographer and artist and the 2011 TED Prize winner. JR creates pervasive art that spreads uninvited on buildings of Parisian slums, on walls in the Middle East, on broken bridges in Africa or in favelas in Brazil. People in the exhibit communities, those who often live with the bare minimum, discover something absolutely unnecessary but utterly wonderful. And they don’t just see it, they make it. Elderly women become models for a day; kids turn into artists for a week. In this art scene, there is no stage to separate the actors from the spectators.

You can check out more of his amazing photographs on his website. Plus make sure you watch the video on the TED website.

Congratulations JR and keep the projects going.
