JR’s Stunning Ballerina on Shipping Containers in France

Renowned street artist JR has just completed his latest piece, but this time, he didn't paint on bare walls of buildings or homes, his canvas of choice was shipping containers. Called Bird Ballerina, the beautiful piece was wheatpasted on, by a team of people, at the Port of Le Havre in France. In contrast to the bright green and red colors of the shipping containers, the black-and-white piece stands out because of its quiet beauty. Behind her own set of bars, the ballerina is like a caged bird, sitting solemnly alone, waiting to be freed. JR's website and Facebook page
