From the Havana Biennial 2012 comes the collaboration of street artists J.R. and Jose Parla.
Exploring the relationship between visuals and social issues, the French “photograffeur” and Cuban-American visual raconteur have transformed the streets of Havana with absorbing murals for their wall-revitalizing “Wrinkles Of The City” exhibit.
Featuring the frenetic calligraphic gestures of Parla and the melancholic portraits of J.R., the fused work blends the two disparate styles into a melodious harmony. Parla’s topographical notes give J.R.’s elderly subjects a dreamlike quality and the imperfect facades add texture while enhancing the depth and tactile quality of each image.
