Eeeewww. Right? Oh, what? It’s art and that’s all that matters? Well, ok. We can dig that. Ben Wilson trawls the streets of inner-city London looking for stray bits of gum on which to create his colourful, intricate artwork. He’s been doing it for six years and has completed around 8,000 paintings. Let’s hope he scrubs his hands thoroughly when he’s finished.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
