Artist Jason Mecier uses found objects -- what some people might call trash or junk -- to “paint” portraits. His latest homage is to the one and only Honey Boo Boo:
The Honey Boo Boo portrait includes:
"...two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, 'sketti,' butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald's chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one Cabbage Patch doll and a jar of pigs feet."
Mecier says it took more than 50 hours to complete.
Mecier calls himself a 'mosaic portrait artist' and told the Food Network that he tries "to use materials that would match the person." For example, his Margaret Cho portrait (which she proudly showed off on the George Lopez show) features a keyboard, a bottle of Jack Daniels, makeup and lots of condom boxes. His Rosie O'Donnel portrait is made out of junk food. Jack Links beef jerky teamed with Mecier to make portraits of this years two presidential candidates out of dried meat. The finished product was called Barack Obameat and Meat Romney.
