Chewing Gum Paintings By Ben Wilson
Imagine walking down the street and all of a sudden the gray sidewalk- once just boring slabs of concrete- turns into a canvas for mini paintings, colorful little morsels that make your day. Ben Wilson, a London based artist, is on a six year quest to turn abandoned bits of chewing gum into a collection of paintings.
Wilson started experimenting with occasional chewing-gum paintings in 1998, and in October 2004 began working on them full time. He has created more than 10,000 of these works on pavements all over the UK and parts of Europe.
