Changing The World: Street Artist Jr Showing The World Its True Face

The 2011 Ted Prize Winner goes to street artist Jr who,  for many years now,  has been plastering cities with  photographs of faces of people who are in extreme poverty or who live on the edge of society.  These images are then  scaled to large sizes and pasted on the walls, roof tops, and public structures found in that particular community.  His work combines art and action and deals with commitment, freedom, identity and limits.  You can read more about Jr at TED PRIZE
