Ben Wilson Paints On Old Chewing Gum: Photos

BEN Wilson paints pictures on chewing gum that’s been chewed and spat out onto the pavement. This pebble-dashing of goo that pepper the streets are blank canvases. You are not a littler lout with filthy habit – you are a patron of the arts. Forget the bin – gob it out and breed art.

And it pays. The Royal Society of Chemistry has offered Wilson a commission to paint 117 chemical elements on pavement gum. Says a RSC spokesperson:

“I would add that we do not support people dropping their gum on the pavement. In fact there has been work performed in the UK by chemists to combat the problem.”

The philistines!
