ABOUT THIS ART:
"It’s next to impossible not to say 'I pity the fool!' when you think of Mr. T. So I’m not going to. This is the fourth piece (of 6) in the 'Jentaculum' series. A stunning fresco found in an ancient dining room under Rome’s Trastevere quarter is what the background is based on. The cereal box rests on the actual table found in Pompeii that was once owned by one of Julius Ceasar’s assassins. His name (Publius Casca Longus) was carved into one of the table legs. How cool is that? The answer? Way cool." - 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.
