Yorkshire-headquartered, graphic display specialist Leach has produced a gigantic visual offering for a stunning mural in New York, as part of its continued work with Brooklyn Museum.

Situated in Domino Park, Williamsburg, the impressive structure has been created to honour the fascinating 20-year career of French photographer, JR – a mysterious figure who started out as a teenage graffiti artist on the streets of Paris.


The installation of the 24m tall x 16m wide canvas – which features images of more than 1,000 of the city’s residents, portrayed in JR’s trademark monochrome – coincides with the seven-month JR: Chronicles exhibit currently open to visitors at Brooklyn Museum.

The fresco was made from Senfa Technologies Textiles – part of manufacturing and services brand Chargeurs Group – on its highly sought-after Domino product, which is perfect for large-format visual communications. Following this, Leach printed the graphics at its Huddersfield HQ – over 3,000 miles away – before installing the finished work on location in the US.

Taking over 10 hours to print and four days to install, a 16-strong team from Leach oversaw the successful end-to-end delivery – which included printing, cutting, sewing, packing, installation and project management.

Tom Foster, Project Director from Leach said: “We’re proud to have been involved in a wide range of incredible heritage projects both in the UK and overseas. Therefore, we were delighted to be offered the opportunity to work with Brooklyn Museum once again.
