Chewing Gum Art!

Dsc_9981

I’d come across this street artist before, but was not aware that Ben Wilson has created over 9,000 pieces of art all over the world!

Basically Ben paints minature images – colourful designs, mini people and words – on chewing gum! He’s done heaps around London and we managed to track down a few pieces in the South East last weekend on the way to Fitzrovia Noir where a lovely chap was showing photos of around 100 examples of Ben’s work. You can see my pics on flickr.

And you can read and see more about Ben Wilson in thisTelegraph article and on the BBC.

Makes you look down when you are wandering around London!
