Chicago Artist Repairs Four Big Potholes with Amazing Quarantine Mosaics
Chicago-based mosaic artist Jim Bachor (featured previously) recently completed this quarantine-themed series of artworks on Gunnison Street (just west of Broadway) in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood.
Bachor says it was his first ‘multi-install’ of pothole art he’s ever done. Sadly, a truck ran over the beer-themed mosaic before the mortar had fully set but hey, that’s street art.
While the toilet paper, beer can and hand sanitizer are instantly recognizable, the fourth mosaic depicts a star from the Chicago flag, meant to generate civic pride, Bachor says.
Bachor’s pothole project began in 2013 and he has since completed nearly 100 mosaics in cities across the United States. To see more of Bachor’s work, check him out at the links below!
