Artist of the moment JR is a very busy man. Whether it’s working with José Parlá in Cuba, exhibiting in Japan, or taking his Inside Out project around the world, JR is a man who is constantly on the run. So when Artsy was given the chance to catch the elusive artist in his New York City studios, it was a no-brainer. Likened to Andy Warhol’s Factory, JR’s expansive studio spans multiple floors and houses, among other things an ever-growing library, a treehouse, a “tree,” a collection vintage candy machines, and artwork at every turn. The studio also serves as a guesthouse for a revolving cast of friends and artists, each one leaving their indelible mark on space.
