Worldwide Street Art 7: Havana Cuba

Posted by Lyemium Editorial on Apr 22, 2013
Street artists JR and José Parlá team up to create several portraits of citizens who survived the Cuban Revolution from 1953-1959.

JR's series in Havana Cuba is a part of a much larger series entitled The Wrinkles of the City. Other locations include: Cartegena, Shanghai and Los Angeles.

Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery located in New York will be showing twelve of these portraits in an upcoming exhibition opening May 7 and running till July 12. The Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba, which was commissioned for the 11th Havana Biennial, has been made into a book published by Damiani/Standard Press, as well as a film, which will be on view at the gallery.
