Potholes: They're literally everywhere.

If you live in a major city, you know that over time, the infrastructure eventually wears down. It's just part of life on the bustling streets of places like New York City and Chicago. Fortunately, people are finding ways to make potholes useful.

Take Jim Bachor, for example. The Chicago-based man is using his artistic techniques to brighten up the ruins on the streets of his city. Instead of drawing penises around the potholes, he decided to do something much cooler.

Bachor fills the potholes with vibrant, eye-catching mosaics made of marble and smalti.

Check out the photos below for a closer look.
