Jason Mecier creates celebrity portraits out of trash and he tells RumorFix exclusively, “I just particularly love the trashier celebrities — they’re more fun!”
And no one’s trashier than Lindsay Lohan.
But there is method to his garbage madness. “I wanted it to be primarily white with hints of pink and orange, so I just sorted through all my bins of junk and picked out all the Lindsay related things. I also bought a few of her CDs, DVDs videos and other merchandise to incorporate in it.
Highlights include make-up, jewelry, sunglasses, credit cards, cell phones, booze bottles, handcuffs, Visine, prescription bottles, Lindsay’s CDs and DVDs, 2 collectable Mean Girls nail files, four ant traps, Monistat 7, eight Q-Tips, 13 bullet shells, one tampon and 29 cigarette butts.
The artist says he hopes Lindsay doesn’t take his art the wrong way, “I hope she likes it. I’m a huge fan.”
And ultimately he would love it to end up in LiLo’s home, but sorry Lindsay, You can’t have it for free.
Jason says his last trash collector’s item was of Honey Boo Boo and it sold for $7,500. TLC bought it and hung it in their lobby in LA.
