About the cover:
The The work of French artist JR (Paris, 1983) comprises large murals that aggrandise the common man and engage with his often overlooked reality, not from a sense of responsibility inherent in ‘art activism’ but from a position of dignity and respect for others. JR’s artistic engagement reconfigures the trappings of our reality awash with images through new images calling for dialogue and transformation leading to freedom of expression and art.
