Chewing Gum Art by Maurizio Savini: Rome, Italy

I appreciate artists that think out of the box and use mediums nobody else would ever think of. Italian artist Maurizio Savini makes these amazing sculptures with pink chewing gum and fibreglass. According to Savini, “The synthetic fleshliness of the pink color, the obsessive square shape of the product unwrapped and ready to be shred to pieces by the power of the tongue, all compete in crashing on the senses. Applying all this to the power and energy of the Sculpture and its history causes a short circuit having the capacity of turning the ludic into stately and vice versa.”
