TED Winner JR: I love this work

TED recently revealed their 2011 prize winner –  a French artist known as JR.

Aside from the fact JR is very Anti-Consumerism, I think his posters have the power to do two things: 1 – Put a face on a location, giving an aura of friendliness and 2- Put an aesthetic appeal to an eyesore of urban decay.

All in all it seems to break down barriers in my opinion, and I applaud his work.

Here are two video’s: The first is JR giving his thank you talk at TED in California:

Here is JR’s Vimeo:
