San Francisco: Celebrity Junk Drawer - Pop Cultured Art

Jason Mecier's 3-D Collage Portrait - Stevie Nicks

Everybody has one. That one drawer we toss miscellaneous items into. It might contain useless stuff or important daily necessities. Regardless, it gives us a peak into our personality. San Francisco based artist Jason Mecier has taken the idea of the junk drawer and turned it into an unusual form of artwork. He uses celebrities’ trash and personal belongings (often donated by the subject themselves) and turns them into fascinating 3-D collage portraits. Each portrait reflects the celebrity’s true essence and contains items you might associate with them – pasta and beans for foodie Rachael Ray, pills for rocker Courtney Love and poker chips for current singing icon Lady Gaga.
