JR’s art is omnipresent. Whether on the façade of a building, the back of a truck, or, currently, the streets of Times Square, the world is quite literally his gallery. But where is he? While we can’t disclose the location, we can give you a behind-the-scenes pass of his New York City studio—an artists’ commune à la Warhol Factory, where artist friends can sleep if they pay their fare in books. On a rare tour, JR offers insights on a space beautifully overrun by art.
