JR’s ‘Horizontal’ Return to Orchard Street with Galerie Perrotin Solo Show
French street artist JR is going big on Orchard Street for the upcoming show at Galerie Perrotin, his first solo exhibit. The Orchard Street showroom – located at the old Beckenstein’s building – is now covered in his trademark, two-toned wheat-paste. There is a rooftop eyeball viewable from the air, and a forty-foot guy grabbing the cornice and peeking through the windows.
Photographer Adrian Wilson stopped by 130 Orchard Street ahead of today’s launch, and sent along a few photos of JR posing with his exhibit, dubbed “Horizontal.”
And here’s the front of the building…
