Chewing Gum Art
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'.
This is something very different. I have never seen something like this before. How creative these people are?
My English has finally moved from the dead point. And for that I am grateful to edusharky and my essay writer. I am very lucky with him, because, first of all, he is able to explain even objectively difficult things in an accessible way, and, secondly, our interests coincide in many ways. Thank you very much for these opportunities!
