Sculptures made of gum
For the last 10 years Italian painter, Maurizio Savini has created wonderful sculptures from pieces of pink bubble gum. Interestingly that creating sculptures from bubble gum is an internationally recognized art form and admirers as well as critics eagerly await for Savini’s next job.
Perhaps gum isn’t the most common material in the world of art, but for the 39-year-old Maurizio – it fits just right. As he finishes another sculpture, the master processes it with the formaldehyde and other chemicals to make it harden so that it does not lose its shape.
