Artist Adds To His 'Celebrity Junk Drawer'
By Ben Trivett Posted Jan 26th 2011 03:00PM
Jason Mecier has a new approach to capturing celebrities -- by using their trash. That's right, this San Francisco-based artist isn't just painting or drawing celebs as he sees them; he's using pieces of their garbage to create beautiful 3-D mosaics. Mecier often contacts celebs directly and asks them for a little bit of their junk to help show more of who they really are.
''I enjoy trying to match the items with the essence of each unique subject. These days, much of my material is gifted to me from friends, family, fans and, of course, the celebrities themselves," Mecier told Socialite Life.
Mecier's portfolio of trash mosaics includes Pink, Paris Hilton, Jimmy Fallon and countless others. He's even looking to do a mosaic of 'Jersey Shore' star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. That trash could be quite interesting! Check out more of Jason's art after the jump.
Mecier does get quite creative when constucting these works of art. He has become a master of using found objects.
"When I was young, I remember being mesmerized by my grandma's paintings, weaving, mosaics, sculptures, collages and stained glass work that filled my grandparents' house and yard. If she was working on an art project, she would set me up at a nearby table with a project of my own to work on," Mecier told Brand X in March.
