Candy Art


We’ve discovered some very unique, candy-made, Mosaic Portraits created by Jason Mecier.

Mecier is a unique artist who has  used a wide range of materials that many would deem “trash” to create intricate portraits of famous celebrities. Recently he released a new series of Mosaics made out of candy ( Hot Tamales, Gummy Bears, Candy Corn, licorice and more) which are pop celebrity inspired! Here are a few of our favorites:

Willy Wonka – the candy man himself made from red and black licorice.

Miley Cyrus – She came in like a wrecking ball- made entirely of candy.


Mario Lopez – Even hotter made of Hot Tamales


Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad – made from broken rock candy pieces


 Zach Galifianakis – made of cute little gummy bears!
