The street artist known as JR has unveiled a new mural in Philadelphia titled 'Migrants, Ibrahim, Mingora-Philadelphia'. Discover the story here...

JR has decorated the Graham Building in Philadelphia with a new street art mural, featuring a portrait of a man named Ibrahim Shah. The new street art features a black and white portrait of the man, and thanks to its placement it seems as if he is pulling the building to one side, making for a striking vision.

JR's subject – Ibrahim Shah – is a Philadelphia resident who immigrated to the U.S. from Pakistan, and now works at a food truck close by to JR's new installation. Take a closer look at the new artwork via the gallery below.
