Dan Colen makes art out of bubble gum. Bright, colourful, different… a bit icky too.
At first Colen and his assistants chewed the gum, but it took so long to complete a single painting, Colen started heating the gum instead. Below are a few of the gum paintings. We’d love to hear your reactions. Do you think they are edgy? Or over the edge? Or something else? One last tidbit of information, one of Colen’s 2008 gum paintings sold at auction for approximately $70,000.
