Potholes Become Surrealist Street Art Through Photography

By Jules Ebe on September 10th 2013

It is amazing where inspiration can strike you. For Davide Luciano, it was an encounter with a ginormous pothole.

The idea came to life after I had [a] sudden collision with a canyon sized crater of a pothole … I decided to channel my frustration into a positive project where the useless pothole would be a source of humour and creativity.

The result: captivating site specific art installations. Alongside Claudia Ficca, the images are actually created using props, models, and a little imagination. Captured within the backdrops of New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto and Montreal, the sets explore the urban flaws as a playground creating a multitude of uses out of the potholes.
