Street artists of Yekaterinburg painted caricatures of the local authorized persons responsible for the state of roads. Pits and bumps became the parts of the images. The caricatures are accompanied by quotes of the authorities promising that the streets of the city are going to look well soon…

“Roads reconstruction is our main goal!”

“Pothole repair is going to be finished by April, 2012″

The action was widely covered in mass media, the news got thousands of views in the internet…

“Painting is not repairing!” – the final message was heard by the public utilities…
