Remember when you or your child brought home one of your first art projects from school that was made out of macaroni noodles that were glued to colored paper? Remember how proud you felt of that piece?
Meet a guy, Jason Mecier, who has taken it to the next step. He is a mosaic portrait artist, and not only does he use macaroni noodles, but also dried beans, gum wrappers, empty bottles, and just about anything else he can get his hands on. And it really is art. Seriously.
Here is a recent portrait he did of Tina Fey. The photo is extra large so you can see all the different items he used to fill the portrait such as Netflix, TV Guide, cell phone, mouse, yellow pages, etc. The more you look, the more you find.
Here's another one of his works. Remember this famous poster of Farrah Fawcett?
I know that beauty/art is in the eye of the beholder, but this guy has to have some talent to begin with! I know I wouldn't have the vision to be able to do this!
