JR & Jose Parlá Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba

JR and Jose Parlá Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba

Marina Cashdan interviews painter Jose Parlá and street artist JR in her Memo From Miami for New York Times T Magazine about their collaboration on the streets of Havana published in the new book Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba. Parlá: "Sometimes kids from the neighborhood would come and help us. It was emotional in a lot of ways, because being Cuban for me and working there, every voice I heard reminded me of my childhood." JR: "It generated a lot of discussion, and eventually people would come to their point of view. And that is part of the process of working in open air with the people, especially in a place where they have some news in the streets, but never in the way that visually takes over advertising." Read the full interview here. On December 8th from 7pm to 11pm Andre Balazs’s Standard Spa Miami Beach hosts a book signing for JR & Jose Parlá's Wrinkles of the City: Havana, Cuba (Damiani) at their pop-up Cuban cafe Cafecito Neptuno.
