Ben Wilson - Artist

Ok, so this is kind of weird and gross...but I suppose you have to admire the ingenuity of artist Ben Wilson who paints discarded chewing gum left on the streets.

I for one would much sooner the roads were covered with bright pattern and colours rather than sticky grey spodges and so it seems would Ben who has painted chewing gum on roads all over London.

"I'm just going to keep going and see how far I get," said Mr Wilson, who started his quest at the Hadley end of High Street, Barnet. "I use acrylic paint and varnish, then I've got a little burner to dry it. I've done different pictures cups of tea, elephants, flowers I do requests as well. Often I just draw whatever takes me on that day."
