When you finish chewing gum you either stick it behind your ear - like Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka - or put it in the bin.

But not if you're Ukranian artist Anna Sofia Matveyeva - because she uses it to make art.

She separates all her chewed gum into different colours and then sticks it on a canvas.

Her paintings can weigh up to 5kg and she's already given the gum treatment to Steve Jobs and Elton John.
