JR 'Migrants, Ibrahim, Mingora-Philadelphia' @ The Graham Building, Philadelphia

Ibrahim, a vendor who immigrated from Pakistan to the U.S., stars in JR’s latest piece.

Concurring yet another urban canvas, JR recently ventured to Philadelphia to present a piece for the Open Source exhibition. As part of the city’s Mural Arts Program, the piece titled Migrants, Ibrahim, Mingora-Philadelphia is centered around Ibrahim Shah, a Philadelphia resident who immigrated to the U.S. from Pakistan. The monochromatic piece is interspersed across the side of The Graham Building at Dilworth Park, a bustling business district only a short walk away from the corner where Ibrahim works in a food truck. Check out the art piece above and stay updated with the French artist’s work via his Instagram.
