JR AND JOSE PARLA “THE WRINKLES OF THE CITY” IN CUBA
JR and Jose Parla are two revolutionary artists whose works blend together almost better than they stand on their own. They continue their collaboration with a new “Wrinkles of the City” project that stretches outward to Havana, Cuba. The series blends the artists’ signature styles into one seamless set of installations across an iconic part of Cuba, while coinciding with the 11th Havana Biennial 2012. The project features work from all over the duo’s experience across the country dating back to March. The selection of buildings fits Parla’s grimy style of calligraphy just as much as it does JR’s affinity for beauty in aging form, and the city itself works as well with the duo’s imagery as they do with one another.
