Gross Art

Halloween is generally viewed as an opportunity to be creative. Maybe you want to try to make an awesome (n gross) art like these?

McDonald's Food Mummy

Artist: Ben Campbell

This 5 feet 2 inches mummy was created out of about $200 worth of McDonald’s food (McDoubles and French Fries) and epoxy resin.

“Ancient Egypt was obsessed with achieving immortality through customs that included mummification and the construction of pyramids. Modern society is likewise obsessed with achieving a from of immortality through our own customs that include pursuing celebrity status and constructing corporations.”

First, Campbell had to make a rubber mold of the mummy. Then he prepared the McDonald's food. "I dried the food out and ran it through a blender."

The artist then mixed that blended formula with clear epoxy resin and pouring the paste into the rubber molds.

"The last part was using the mixture to stick the cast parts to each other and cleaning the sculpture up."

The sculpture aims to show the world "that McDonald's food is so full of preservatives that it will literally last forever."

Chewing Gum Sculpture

Artist: De Eindhovense & SintLucas Art Students

This 4.5m (15 feet) high sculpture of a man with his arms raised made entirely of chewing gum.

Approximately 3,000 students from two vocational art universities (De Eindhovense and SintLucas) in the Netherlands, each chewed on a piece of gum before adding it to the structure - a sign of unity - as part of a campaign developed by international communications agency KesselsKramer.

'Youngsters no longer left their chewing gum under chairs and tables, but used it to create their own work of art.’

Chewing Gum Portraits

Artist: Anna Sophia Matveeva

Anna Sophia Matveeva, from Makiivka, Ukraine creates portraits of celebrities from used chewing gum.

Every one of her artworks use over 1,000 pieces of chewed gum, so she asked her husband, her relatives and some of her friends to help her out. If the donated pieces of gum were hard, they just need some time in the microwave before being stuck on to the canvas.

Anna molded and placed every single piece with her bare hands.
