Next time you’re seeking for excellent art, consider watching your stride. One artist has taken it upon himself to beautify cracks and holes on the pavement with colorful mosaic art. Jim Bachor, who lives in Chicago, turns unattractive potholes into lovely replicas of renowned artworks.
This quartet of paintings, appropriately titled Master Pieces, depicts famous works of art housed at the Art Institute of Chicago. As the source of inspiration for Master Pieces to My Modern Met, Bachor says, “It’s all about juxtaposition.” Every now and then, when I’m beginning a new series of pothole art, I like to compare high-brow subjects with low-brow pothole art (such as my series of high-end brand patterns like Burberry and Gucci). The Master Pieces series does the same thing, taking iconic, well-known pieces from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection and setting them in the gritty city.
