Artist Ben Wilson has created miniature pieces of artwork by painting on discarded pieces of chewing gum.

His latest pieces of work have gone on display on the Millennium Bridge in London where they have been described as the chance to "turn something some people would find disgusting into something artistic and beautiful".

Although most of the pictures are no more than an inch deep, they still can take up to 10 hours to paint.

Before starting, Wilson, who paints in acrylics, chooses gum splatters with unusual shapes "to allow art to happen in a random way".
