He has amazed the world with his Kevin Bacon portrait made entirely out of bacon; Lindsay Lohan portrait made out of trash; and Michael Douglas portrait made out of Mike & Ike’s. Now, pop artist Jason Mecier has revealed his latest creation just in time for Halloween, according to an Oct. 29 press release email.
This year marks the 35th anniversary of John Carpenter’s horror movie classic, “Halloween,” which starred scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis. For his portrait, Mecier spent over 40 hours recreating the film’s killer, Michael Myers, out of assorted Halloween candy – including mini-sized Snickers; M&M’s; Crunch bars; and Tootsie Rolls.
“‘Halloween’ is the most iconic movie to make out of Halloween candy,” Mecier said in the email. “I wanted to capture the moody atmosphere of the icy blue movie lighting.”
This is not the first time Mecier has created an iconic horror movie villain out of candy. He also made a portrait of Freddy Krueger from “A Nightmare on Elm Street” entirely out of Red Vines licorice. The portrait, which can be viewed here, took 15 pounds of licorice to create.
