Chewing gum art trail: stick with it

Ben Wilson's chewing gum art © Sonya BarberIt is a joyful day when upon stepping out of the doors of Time Out towers, I trip straight over mr Ben Wilson aka The Chewing Gum Man lying on the floor painstakingly creating a miniature work of street art. If you haven’t come across his tiny little masterpieces yet, you are in for a sweet treat. We are lucky enough to have some of his fine work just outside our office (eyes down everyone next time you walk down Tottenham Court Road) but now you can experience his work further afield. Get off the tube at East India DLR and follow the colourful chewing gum dots down to Trinity Buoy Wharf  to see a photographic exhibition of his work from February 3 to 5 (12-5pm). Go get stuck in.

For info, see trinitybuoywharf.com.
