Jason Mecier: The Hidden Potential of Junk

Jason Mecier has a vision unlike most.  He is an artist, and a creator or some pretty rad portraits, but he does not imagine his subjects in pastels or watercolors, pencil or acrylic; instead, Meceir creates his masterpieces out of junk – everything from bubble gum and pickles to sunglasses, deodorant, and makeup.

As a child Jason’s grandmother encouraged him to create masterpieces using whatever he could find, and he says, “I learned from her that I can make art out of anything I want to, and that there are no rules.”  So true, so true.

In 2002 Meceir completed a true masterpiece.  A project that he worked on for half a decade.  A piece made of 185,252 pencils in the house of Jaina A. Davis in San Francisco, CA.  It is called Pencil Vania—the “Forest of Pencils.”
