Art has disputable forms, but a recent potrait by San Francisco-based artist Jason Mecier really spells out what so many have argued about “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” reality show. The portrait of Honey Boo Boo made of trash has gone viral.
Jason Mecier’s portrait of Honey Boo Boo aka Alana Thompson is a great illustration of what some many people have said about her reality show. Yes, it’s trash, but it’s a good-looking, eye-catching piece of trash, that although is horrifying to watch, it feels like a documentary on Discovery network about some tribe in a god-forsaken land. In the meanwhile, just like her reality show, Honey Boo Boo’s portrait made of trash has gone viral.
“I just love the show. I’m obsessed with the show right now” confessed Jason Mecier in a statement for ABC News. “It’s like every time you watch an episode, I think there’s no way it could get any better, and then it just does” he confessed.
The stuff he used to make the Honey Boo Boo trash portrait was given to him by people who just saved that for him. But for the most part he just collects “things on the street” or saves “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter lids”. And the pink things in the Honey Boo Boo portrait were originally meant for a Paris Hilton trash mosaic.
Celebrities themselves help Jason Mecier with trash. “What I try to do is get celebrities to send me a box of their junk. My favorite pieces are where the celebrity sends me their junk, like Rosie O’Donnell, George Lopez or Phyllis Diller. She sent me, like, 20 boxes of stuff” he added.
Jason Mecier worked more than 50 hours on a mosaic portrait of Honey Boo Boo, the child star of a reality show that has people equally outraged and amazed. The portrait is made of all kinds of recycled trash and weights 25-lbs, and features some of the kid’s most favorite products. Plus he has already received three offers to sell his piece.
“No roadkill was injured during the making of this portrait” says Jason Mecier who is specialized in making “outrageous 3-D mosaic portraits of his favorite pop culture icons”. The highlights of the portrait “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 McDonalds’ chicken nugget”. Add to that list “a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of Pigs Feet”.
