Can you find all Ben's chewing Gum paintings around Alexandra Palace?
Having worked as a sculptor and artist for more than 16 years, travelling all over the UK, Europe and the US, Ben focuses on taking rubbish and discarded waste and turning it into something beautiful.
Inspired by the urban landscape in which he typically works, Ben is perhaps most famous for his ‘chewing gum art’ – taking trodden-in pieces of chewing gum and turning them into miniature artworks. These intricately detailed pieces encourage people to look more closely at their natural environment. Featuring bright splashes of colour, often in unexpected places, the pieces transform an unpleasant discarded item and turn it into something positive.
