Re ale state

gumartThis was the first of Ben Wilsons minitures on the Millenium Bridge that I noticed whilst crossing from Bankside to visit Maydayrooms on Fleet Street winter 2014.

Captivated, I inched along snapping other chewing gum paintings and blocking pedestrians till almost tripping over him, working just a few meters along.1024px-ben_wilson_chewing_gum_artist_at_work

His playful response to the available canvas reminded me of Tim Cooks beautifully crafted, sculptures, collages and paintings, often re-purposing everyday objects and images.

Some eventually adorned Backspace, which Tim helped us build in 1996. These are the few we have at Deckspace.
