About The Artist
"Introducing the first piece in the 'Jentaculum' series! Jentaculum is the name for the first meal of the day for ancient Romans.'Quisp' and his (her? its?) adversary 'Quake' had an ongoing battle for the hearts and minds of kids in the early 1970s. 'Quake' will be featured as the second piece in this set of five. Secondary items (like the dead fish) are taken from existing examples of ancient mosaic and fresco still lives." - 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.
