Imagine walking down the street and seeing vibrant colors fill the not-so-pretty sidewalk cracks that, if you believe the old adage, would break your mother’s back. Transforming the streets of Paris into a makeshift canvas, artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera filled those cracks and potholes with kaleidoscopic pieces of fabric. As a sort of yarn bombing — but without the yarn — Herrera dyed and braided the fabric, which was then coiled into crevices for the beautiful project. Brighten your day with some of her gorgeous street art and check out a stop-motion video Ms. Herrera coupled with the photos, after the jump.
