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.
