There is something so playful and cheery about Juliana Santacruz Herrera's fantastic yarn-bombed potholes and they way they seem to light up what are otherwise frustrating and all-too familiar fixtures of everyday life.

For anyone who has lived in a city, or near any road for that matter (probably most people), potholes can be a constant annoyance -- particularly because the amount of time it takes for them to be repaired, if ever, is oftentimes extensive. But where most people might see just a nuisance, Juliana Santacruz Herrera's art instead highlights an opportunity for vividly colorful imagination.

By turning otherwise run-down street surfaces into optimistic yarn creations, Juliana Santacruz Herrera shows, yet again, how street art is one of the highest forms of urban creativity. Stats for Pothole Yarn Graffiti Trending: Older & Warm
