Art – Chewing Gum Artist – Ben Wilson – London

February 1, 2012 § Leave a comment

Ben Wilson made his name by applying artistic designs to that most unlikely of canvases, squashed pavement gum. An exhibition and trail of his work opens at Trinity Buoy Wharf on 2 February. The masticatory maestro is the first visiting artist in a new arts programme funded by Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust.

Each artist will leave a permanent work of art at the site, which is famous for its lighthouse and container city, and as home of the Longplayer 1000-year piece of music. As part of the show, Wilson has created a trail of illustrated chewing gum from East India DLR down to the Wharf, where you’ll find a photographic exhibition of his previous work. Ben Wilson’s exhibition is at The Boiler House, Trinity Buoy Wharf, E14 0JW on 3-5 February 2012, 12-5pm, with an opening night on 2 February (5-9pm). Entrance is free. The gum trail is visible at any time.
