ABOUT THIS ART:

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

”'Bombpop' is easily my most popular piece. I think it takes everyone right back to being a kid chasing down the ice cream truck in the summer. It also screams 'America!' being red, white and blue and the fact it looks like a rocket (and IS called a bomb.)

What I’ve tried to do with some of my pothole art series is juxtapose 'universal truths.' Everyone hates potholes. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old, suburban or city, everyone hates them. I like to contrast that with something that pretty much everyone loves, like ice cream or flowers."
- Bachor

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chicago artist Bachor adapts the mosaic, an art form that dates to at least the third millennium BC, and applies it to contemporary American life. From junk food to potholes to breakfast cereal, his vibrant work permanently locks into mortar unexpected concepts drawn from the present. Using the same materials, tools, and methods of the craftsmen of antiquity, he creates mosaics that speak of modern things, but in an ancient voice. By harnessing and exploiting the limitations of this indestructible technique, Bachor’s work continually surprises the viewer, while challenging long-held notions of what a mosaic should be. Bachor’s work has been included in juried shows throughout the country and his pothole art project has attracted world-wide attention since 2013. Recent public art commissions include “thrive”, a 700+ sqft mosaic installed at the Chicago Transit Authority’s Thorndale Red Line station and “RUN CHI” located within Niketown in downtown Chicago. In 2017 Bachor's work was featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Oprah Winfrey's "O" Magazine and on the cover of the March issue of Chicago Magazine.
