Ben Wilson, a British artist, uses an unusual medium for his paintings:  used chewing gum squashed on sidewalks.  The process of transforming the flattened gum from litter to artwork usually takes between a couple of hours and a couple of days.       

I  love how his art transforms something ugly into something beautiful.
