Arts and culture magazine The Dirt Floor tipped us off to the fact that street artist JR has been prolific these days, as he puts up his project "The Wrinkles of the City." LA Weekly reports that one of the project's former homes was Shanghai, and that the Parisian-born artist will now slowly cover Los Angeles with new works in 20 different locations.

Pieces have already gone up from Venice to downtown and in several places in-between. LAist Featured Photos pool contributor Lord Jim caught JR in action -- here's some of his latest work.
