Chewing Gum Art and Red 256

A bridge personalised- in gum
Yesterday having spent some time at Tate Modern on my return to St Paul's Underground station I overheard some people talking about ' detail' on the Millennium bridge, sure enough when I stopped and looked there were some miniature 'works of art like the one below.

It turns out that this is 'Chewing gum art' by Ben Wilson (nice piece on the works and the man here) - he doesn't only do them on this once wobbly bridge either (more here).

The art he creates fits loosely under the Outsider Art banner and there is an entry in Wikipedia which provides some detail about him too.

Keep your eyes open
You can find out more in this report too.

Red 256

Yesterday it was  an exciting looking  motorbike- today it's a boat who knows what'll be next?

Another speedy Red
