As we get closer to the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympics, we are treated to a pair of massive installations created artist JR who has also contributed the pieces to the Brazilian city. The giant creative works coincide with his ongoing “Inside Out” series. The first sculpture is placed on the roof of a residential complex, and is pictured leaping of the building. The second piece can be seen near the Barra neighborhood, and shows a diver leaping into the ocean. Heading to Rio for the Olympics? Be sure to check out the installations down below and in person.
