French Artist Fills Potholes Across Europe with Mosaics

We like to celebrate good news when we come across it, and this article from Nice News brightened our Friday morning.

An anonymous artist known as Ememem, has been filling in street and sidewalk divots with striking geometric mosaics — colorful bursts of beauty amid the asphalt. He’s has been creating the pieces for the last six years, first in Lyon, then Paris, and throughout Europe — adorning streets in Norway, Germany, Spain, Scotland, and Italy with hundreds of his creations.

According to his website, which refers to him as a “sidewalk poet,” he’s interested in “the art of healing the street,” believing that his mosaics encourage viewers to reflect “on the care given to what is damaged and the role that we can give to our public spaces.”

Check out some of his work below, and read more about him here.
