Chicago Potholes Beware: Bachor’s Mosaics are Back

Back in June, I posted about Chicago-based artist Jim Bachor who took it upon himself to tackle the city’s pothole problem by filling them with handmade tile mosaics.  He’s recently popped up again with a new approach to his guerrilla pothole repair. He’s transitioned from mosaics featuring arbitrary serial numbers and simple descriptions (e.g. “POTHOLE”) to beautiful floral designs. So far, Bachor has given his floral mosaic treatment to four potholes throughout Chicago; locations and photos can be found on his website. He’s also been commissioned for some truly beautiful installations, photos of which can also be found on Bachor’s site.
