Jason Kronenwald - Gum Blondes

Canadian Jason Kronenwald creates portraits of blonde celebrities from 100% chewed bubblegum which are mounted on plywood backing. His subjects include Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Kate Moss.

No paint or dye is used. The colour is inherent to the gum. The mixing of colours takes place inside the mouth during chewing using an endless variety of companies. Kronenwald has a dedicated team of chewers and prefers the texture of Trident. However, he does not chew himself unless he must.
