New Ben Wilson Street Art In Shoreditch

Over the last couple of weeks whilst travelling around Shoreditch we have noticed a recent spate of activity from Ben Wilson aka The Chewing Gum Man, one of London’s most interesting artists. Taking to London’s floors Ben Wilson utilizes discarded chewing gum as his canvas of choice, preferring to paint something less obvious and equally less obtrusive in its nature. Drawing inspiration from his immediate surroundings his works are for the most part site-specific as demonstrated in several of the pieces below. It’s always a pleasure to see Ben Wilson works and this makes the first time we have seen so many recent additions to an area other than when travelling over the Millenium Bridge – certainly the best place to see work from this unique artist, so if you find yourself wandering about London always be sure to look down.
