Art connoisseurs, get ready. This piece of artwork isn’t for sale yet, but when it goes up, we’re pretty sure it’s going to sell quickly. There’s not a piece of art in this world that thoroughly embodies it’s subject, Honey Boo Boo, more clearly than Jason Mecier’s new piece. It’s a 3-D rendering of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alaina Thompson, made completely of trash. Jason’s work usually uses items that embody it’s subject, and for this incredible piece, he used reclaimed trash. Kinda cool, and probably kinda stinky in a year or two.
Jason Mecier explained the piece by saying, “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. No roadkill was injured during the making of this portrait!”
Personally, the Cabbage Patch Doll really takes the cake for me. It’s just too perfect. I also LOVE the Snuggie box cut-out at the bottom, “It’s a blanket with sleeves!” If you take a close look, the piece almost becomes a game, where your eyes catch something new every few seconds. The whole portrait weighs in at over 25 lbs, and took 50 hours to make. Really, I’m sure that chicken nugget and can’t be smelling all that great right now, even under sealant. But who am I to judge? One person’s art is another person’s garbage! Oh, wait.
What do you think of the portrait?
