Anonymous Artist Adds A Giant Baby To The US / Mexico Border Wall

Anonymous Artist Adds A Giant Baby To The US / Mexico Border Wall

Anonymous French street artist JR recently finished a piece along the US/Mexico border wall that transforms the wall into a baby's plaything.

The black and white piece rises 70 feet into the air on the Mexican side, facing outward to be visible from the U.S. It will stay up for one month.

By adding the colossal billboard of a one-year-old, JR has effectively turned the border wall into an art tourism destination. The wall is now a gallery and he even dropped a pin for curious culture seekers to find. Just head to Tecate, California and follow JR's coordinate's in Google maps.

Some people dream about fantasy worlds, I dream about walls.

This isn't the first time JR has worked with border walls. Well known for his work with faces, JR has been known to paste portraits on both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian border wall. "Some people dream about fantasy worlds, I dream about walls,” he told the New York Times. So what made this particular piece so fascinating? The image immediately went viral as soon as it hit Reddit, likely fueled by the fact that Donald Trump moved to repeal DACA, a program to protect undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. The timing is significant, but JR is still unsure what the piece means exactly. The concept came to him in a dream and developed organically from there.

At 1 year old, you don’t see the frontier or which side is better.

“I wonder, is this kid worrying about what will happen? What does he think?” JR says, referring Kikito, the child he based the portrait on. “At 1 year old, you don’t see the frontier or which side is better.”

Want to visit the piece in person? JR has very helpfully dropped a coordinate pin in Google maps. And if you can't make it to California, follow JR's work on Instagramfor the next best thing.
