Ukranian artist, Anna Sofia Matveyeva, is gaining a reputation in her hometown of Donetsk, Ukraine, for utalising chewing gum for artistic purposes. Steve Jobs and Elton John are amoung those who have had the ‘gum treatment’. The gum is first chewed, seperated into different colours and then heated in a microwave. Gum art paintings can weigh up to 5kg.
