This tiny artwork is one of many on the footway of the Milleneum Bridge in London. Ben Wilson, aka Chewing Gum Man has been painting on pieces of chewing gum stuck onto the metal deck, chewing gum discarded by passersby and trodden beneath the feet of hundreds or thousands of people.
Another miniature is almost complete as the artist lies amongst passing feet, intent on his work.
The gap between the raised metal treads is about 1 cm or half an inch, so imagine that as you look at these examples, photographed by me with people hurrying by … quite a challenge not to be in their way as I crouched low with my camera.
Although the coloured works were easier to see, I began to notice more subtle b&w figures too …
like this woman above …. and then here is another woman below, dancing with a crowd!
Hope you enjoyed learning a little about Ben Wilson and his creative street art …. remember to look for it next time you are crossing Millenium Bridge.
