More JR on Grand & Wooster

This article was posted by Martha Cooper 3 years, 4 months, 20 hours, 51 minutes ago.

JR pulled an all nighter working from midnight until 8:00am installing another of his humongous photo murals.  Like the Houston Street wall, the image is from his Native American Standing Rock Nation project in North and South Dakota. The location shares a wall with my Shepard Fairey Defiant Youth colab. It also faces the parking lot on Grand directly opposite Henry Chalfant’s fabled studio where writers used to hang out for hours checking out Henry’s latest subway graffiti photos.  Another JR installation is around the corner on Wooster.

Installation started around midnight.

Pasting the final piece.



Work had to finish by 8:00 so that the lift could be cleared from the parking lot.


Checking the piece against the Xerox and spotting an imperfection.


Fixing the problem.


Done! JR rides off on his Solex.
