pothole art

Artists Pete Dungey and Juliana Santacruz Herrera beautify the streets of Europe...






Herrera patches up cracks on the streets of Paris with braids of colorful yarn. Dungey plants gardens in the potholes on British roads.

Who would have thought one could make something beautiful out of such an obscure eyesore like a pothole?

I showed these photos to my 6-year-old son and he suddenly wants to fix our broken floor tiles. I can already imagine him patching them up with his Lego bricks...

Credits: This is another one of the many wonderful things I discovered from A Cup of Jo. Yarn art photos are from Herrera's flickr site. And pothole garden photos are from Jo. Lego photo is from thinkhenry.
