Pothole Art

Potholes, of all things are Montreal artists' ( Claudia Ficca and Davide Luciano ) muse. A pothole becomes a beer cooler while another is a vessel for baptism; yet another a baker's cauldron in which doughnuts are frying!
Through a series of guerrilla street-level photo shoots, craters are turned into objects of fancy with a positive, humorous spin.










"We started fantasizing ," Ficca said. "And we thought, "Wouldn't it be funny if we saw a woman washing clothes in a pothole?"

The woman washing the clothes in the pot hole is hilarious. There should be one of children getting a bath in a pothole with some shampoo and a scrubbie.
