Jason Mecier, known primarily as a mosaic artist, has made a name for himself portraying infamous pop culture figures in junk assemblages. He's prepared portraits of Donald Trump and Andy Warhol, and most recently has lowered the bar with a piece dedicated to reality television star Honey Boo Boo. The artist lists his impressive materials, " “Highlights include 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.”
A celebration of America? Or, simply a sad ploy? You decide.
