This week, I spotted a new gumpic on the Millennium Bridge. The brightly coloured Bunnie is on the slope up to the bridge and you’ll spot it easily if you focus on the floor.
Gumpic work by the Chewing Gum Man, London, 2020
A few years ago, I came across the Ben Wilson, aka The Chewing Gum Man, hard at work on the Millennium Bridge.
He turns well trodden litter into little gems, being careful to cause no damage to the surroundings, only applying his intricately painted details to the offending chewing gum.
Here’s a little collection of his work, some with scenes that you’ll recognise, and many are dated and signed.
