Pop artist Jason Mecier creates playful, insanely detailed portraits of celebrities using trash, candy, and other items, making sculptural celebrations of his subjects and our fascination with fame. Here is Amy Sedaris assembled from her own trash, David Bowie made out of cosmetics and feathers, Snoop Dogg sculpted out of weed, Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus crafted out of candy, and Kevin Bacon made out of bacon. The meticulously created images are as beautiful as Pop Trash they are entertaining, literally trashy and candy-coloured spotlights on the glamorous and infamous. Fun process shots detail some of the work behind the scenes (how much liquorice does it take to make Harry Potter?), and portraits ranging from Stevie Nicks to Honey Boo Boo make the book a visual treat for pop culture and pop art fans alike
Jason Mercier creates outrageous one-of-a-kind mosaic portraits. His artwork has been featured everywhere from Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times, on TV shows like Glee, Rachael Ray and TMZ, as well as music videos by Pink and Pitbull. He lives in San Francisco.
