The Pothole Gardener

East London is as much a hub of creativity as it is a home for urban degradation and one Londoner, Steve Wheen has followed the Guerilla Gardening guys by bringing miniature green art installations to scenes of ill-repair with his The Pot Hole Gardener project in aid of a charity I am currently working with, Cancer Research UK.

Wheen describes his green installations as, “Part art project, part labour of love, part experiment, part mission to highlight how shit our roads are – the pictures and gardens are supposed to put smiles on peoples faces and alert them to potholes! I don’t leave any of the props out after we shoot them, I have only ever created low gardens on very quiet streets, mostly dead end lanes and on footpaths in my areas.”
