One Man’s Trash Is Another’s Art Supply

March 30, 2010

We’re digging San Francisco artist Jason Mecier and his schizo view of celebrity. His 3D mosaic portraits of the stars are created solely with discarded objects or items that one might associate with the luminary (think deodorant, wrappers, broken sunglasses, pasta, pills…even a turkey baster!)  To Mecier, anything can be used as art supply.  Sometimes he dumpster dives himself, although oftentimes his tabloidal subjects directly send boxes of their old stuff.  Lucky you if you caught the “Celebrity Junk Drawer” exhibit at Ghettogloss Gallery March 17-24.
