JR’s “WOMEN ARE HEROES” video

Posted in 1 by BLDG on March 1, 2010

As a photographer myself, I can’t help but love most of JR’s work. I, personally, think this video rivals BLU’s MUTO in that it truly shows the effect that street art can have on a community of people. It’s more of a mini documentary on a a single install of art. My favorite part is when a woman makes the comment that she hopes it stays up at least long enough for her to stop noticing it. I think that’s the point of street art. It isn’t to make a piece of art that goes down in history forever and leaves a legacy for the artist, it’s to make a comment on society, politics, the world, etc. that people can be challenged with and chew through.

    i wonder the cost difference between the artist actually doing it and the buff squad…i would say it was more on the buff squad but regardless it was dope!
