English Artist Brightens the Sidewalk By Painting Stuck Chewing Gum

Ben Wilson is an English artist best known for his unique brand of chewing gum art. That’s what he’s up to in that photo above; Wilson paints the dried chewing gum stuck to the ground. He’s has been doing this for about ten years now and has even been arrested a couple times, though all charges were dropped when it was determined that no law forbids the painting of rubbish. 

Here’s a terrific Flickr album of his art.

And here are some great resources if you’d like to learn more about Ben Wilson.
