Ben Wilson’s Bubble Pop Art

Written by Vivianne

How many times did you find yourself swearing and whining because a silly piece of chewing gum got stuck onto your fancy red sole? For the past six years, British artist Ben Wilson has been searching the streets of London for just that: the pieces of gum that get left behind by urban dwellers every day, waiting to be stepped on. He then spray paints them and turns them into a piece of art that will make you feel happy, not bummed. How cool is that?
