Street Artist Creates Tasteful Little Apartments in Milan's Manholes

No, they're not apartments occupied by anthropomorphic mice

Although you could be forgiven for thinking that these exceptionally well decorated manholes in Milan are little apartments occupied by Stuart Little-like anthropomorphic mice, they are actually a series of installations called "Borderlife" from street artist Biancoshock. The artist told StreetArtNews that they are intended to make a statement of the extreme living conditions that some residents have been forced into in Bucharest, where around 600 people live in the sewers. "If some problems can not be avoided, make them comfortable," he is quoted as saying.
