Artist Uses Discarded Chewing Gum As Blank Canvas
Ben Wilson paints miniature pieces of art on squashed gum that litters London streets.
English artist Ben Wilson looks at society and he sees a lot of consumerism and a lot of waste. Instead of contributing to that waste, he takes what others would consider to be trash and transforms it into tiny bits of artwork. His work is all in miniature because Wilson’s sole canvas is the flatten pieces of chewed up gum that people spit on the street.
