Whitney Houston's Portrait

Hard to Swallow

3/1/2012 9:30 AM PST BY Johnny Lopez

0301_whitney_houston_pills_SplashCrack is whack, but pills are ... a work of art?

A portrait of late singer Whitney Houston made up entirely of pills has been created by mosaic artist Jason Mecier. In the past, Mecier has made similar portraits of Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and Courtney Love among others.

Ibuprofen, Xanax, Midol and amoxicillin were some of the pills found in Whitney's hotel room when she died last month.

It is well done and should show a message to how much medication society is trying to have crammed down our throats.

instead of people trying to make her look like she was a pill popper... Why not talk about how the pharmaceutical business makes trillions by using doctors as puppets? When your doctor gives you a free sample do some research on the side effects, and where this sample was made 99% of the time is was made in china or Japan....

Those appear to be vitamins. Pretty clever, but for me, portraits made of objects, gum, peeps....etc...the novelty has kind of worn off.

I find this to be the most disgraceful portrait known to man it has no humor at all I think its very disrespectful you should not poke fun at the dead you should be banned for creativity.

I like it -- they don't look like pills. They look like candy sprinkles.

I call this art. Wish I could do it. A lot of the crap people call art isn't art but just trash somebody put together.

As a work of art, it's really good. But the choice of "paint" is bad.
