Potholes Art by Claudia Ficca and Davide Luciano

Artwork, featured

Claudia Ficca and Davide Luciano are Canadian artists who decided to take an ugly inconvenience – a pothole, and turn it into art.  The photoshoots took only 10 minutes from start to finish, and took place in cities like New York, Montreal, and LA.  Take a look at what they’ve done.

Santa Claus

Just in time for the holidays.

Winemaking

Grape Stomping

I can’t explain why, but this gives me the willies.  Maybe because I’m a wine-drinker, and I always wonder whose feet have been in  my Pinot.

Laundry

Laundry

She’s so pretty you don’t want to tell her that washing your clothes in a pothole is nasty.  Or, maybe the point of the art is that it is supposed to transcend the pothole.

Baptism

What, it’s too hard to find a real baby to use?

Baywatch

What pothole?

Bubble Bath

Rubber Duckies make bathtime fun!

Champagne

Again, what pothole?  Kidding aside, the composition of this is very nice.  The strawberries are a nice touch.

Diver

Dive In

They sure do have big potholes in Montreal, where this photo was taken.

Dog Wash

I’ve heard of mobile pet grooming, but come on.

Alice in Wonderland

Down the Rabbit Hole

In this version of the story, she ends up fighting a blind alligator instead of the Jabberwocky.

Fisherman

Fishing

Some guys will use any excuse to fish.

Pedicure

I hope the polish is quick-drying.

Walk of Fame

Actually, this could save the road crew a lot of work.  Fill them all up with concrete, let people put their handprints and signature in there, and make ’em pay for it!  Genius!

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and Meatballs

That’s just…ew.  I mean, I love spaghetti, but this dude looks like he’s really dreading that bite.  Is he dreading the carb coma, or the inevitable asphalt chunks?  We may never know.

Check out all their photos on mypotholes.com.  All these images belong to them, not us.  We’re just giving them mad props for a great idea and some stunning photography.
