Paris is universally seen as a romantic city. It feeds our girly, fertile imagination with old movies where the beautiful couple kiss under the Eiffel Tower. For tourists, the architecture is so mesmerizing, they cannot even look where they are walking, their dreamy eyes stuck in the sky. Well, thanks to Juliana Santacruz Herrera, they will now have a good reason to do so. Braiding colorful fabric strips to fill potholes, the artist has added a dose of happiness to the gray-ish streets. Her work takes place in new, interesting reversal in the street art universe, as if paint was not enough anymore. New materials are use to express the Street-artists’ way of thinking. When some decide to write complain to the city, Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to tell the world her dissatisfaction about potholes in a more beautiful, creative and surprising way.
