2015-08-24 // art unusual street art

The amazing Chewing Gum Art project by the British artist Ben Wilson, who likes to turn abandoned chewing-gums on the sidewalks into miniature street art, spending several hours carefully painting each creation. A series started in 1998, which now has more than 10,000 miniature creations! His approach, centered around pollution, garbage and neglect, is to raise awareness by attracting the eyes of people on the waste that dot our cities and our daily lives.
