Secondhand gum portraits

It’s that moment when you reach under the table and immediately regret it when your fingers touch the crusty, dried out secondhand gum stuck to the underside of the tabletop. Old gum is repulsive, right? Think again. Artist Anna Sophia Matveeva has completely re-invented the “medium” of secondhand gum. She used the sticky substance to create the awesome, large scale pop art style portraits. Each piece requires over a thousand pieces of gum. But don’t worry, Matveeva had some help from friends. She didn’t have to chew it all!
