i blogged about the chewing gum man, ben wilson almost 3 years ago on 23.8.2014. ^^

that time, like today, i was walking through borough market & enjoying the street eats with my son. then my son led me to walk along the thames to the millenium bridge.

at the time, ben wilson had already created >400 mini art pieces using chewing gum spit stuck between the metal gratings.

walking along southwark/tate modern side, i found that many of the “art pieces” had been removed, “cleansed??”.

fortunately, as i progressed towards st pauls’ end of the millenium bridge, i found several pieces remained.

sign of relief! phew! ^^

there were mermaid & snake people & river birds, and of course all different kinds of patterns & abstracts.

quite a pleasant distraction & attraction.

works of beauty, nature or man-made are recognisable anyway.

these may have been mini or minor effort of one person, but it is still adding colours & joy to the bridge &  to our lives if we want to see the colours & enjoy the moments.
