This rather impressionistic piece of art is made from chewing gum. The used stuff. It's also tiny. The circle is perhaps eight centimeters in diameter.
I came across it in Muswell Hill, on the Parkland Walk - it's on a bridge with a rather dramatic view, and depicts that same view (you can see the gum towards the bottom of the photo below). Clever!
The artist himself had passed by minutes earlier - I didn't initially realise who he was. His name is Ben Wilson; he lives in Muswell Hill; and he has done upwards of 10,000 pieces of chewing gum art, with a technique he has devised himself.
It turn out that Wilson and his miniature art featured in the New York Times almost a decade back. The image below is from Kickstarter which has been seeking pledges towards a book on 'the Chewing Gum Man'.
