How does your garden grow?

I’ve just stumbled across the most amazing bijou artworks from The Pothole Gardener, artist, Steve Wheen. He takes guerilla gardening to a different level with these beautiful installations. He recently exhibited at the Chelsea Fringe, or more accurately, the Eastern Fringe which was Hackney’s very own version and hopefully will do so again next year. Inspired by the idea of turning something rubbish into that which can be cherished, he devised the concept of ‘Holes of Happiness’, which he has turned into a documentary charting peoples reactions to his work. Originally spontaneous natural interventions, Steve’s work now takes serious planning, design and forethought; the latest of which is his Olympic series, so keep your eyes peeled on a pavement in the vicinity very soon.
