Miniature Pothole Gardens Drawing Attention on the State of Some London Roads
Steve Wheen is the artistic mind behind a great blog entitled the pothole gardener. It is here that he uploads pictures of various miniature gardens he develops around east London: “I came up with the project as part of my university course, and it has grown from there (no pun intended!). Part art project, part labor of love, part experiment, part mission to highlight how shit our roads are – the pictures and gardens are supposed to put smiles on peoples faces and alert them to potholes! I don’t leave any of the props out after we shoot them, I have only ever created low gardens on very quiet streets, mostly dead end lanes and on footpaths in my areas“- stated Steve Wheen. The projects of the London guerrilla gardener, found on My Modern Met, are original and diverse, offering a cheerful alternative to the otherwise sad state of some East London streets.
