    The attention to detail and space-age subject matter remind me of Rosenquist, even though these are b+w.

      totally reminded me of robert longo. but i’m not sure if it reminded me of it in a good way. regardless nice hand skills . ..

        After a quick amount of research, (looking at the 2 artist sites) you can see the dates of the exhibitions where these works first appeared – Jonathan Zawada 2008, Robert Longo 2009. Blogs tend to take a little while to catch up on the latest works… If Longo’s were posted before Zawada’s, doesn’t mean his were first.

    yeah, definitely a lot of great stuff going on here. A couple of these, however, aren’t given room to breath on their own, outside of the Longo comparison.

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post).

The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
