Artist Jason Mecier has taken his love of pop culture and his love of licorice and married them in new art pieces that he created using on average 500 pieces of licorice. Here are art pieces created by Mecier of Dexter‘s Dexter Morgan (played by Michael C. Hall),Twilight star Taylor Lautner, A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Kruger (played by Robert Englund) and Showgirls‘s Nomi Malone (played by Elizabeth Berkley):
I understand Mecier‘s licorice of choice is Red Vines and each one of his artworks is worth about $2,000. These pieces and others will be exhibited in San Francisco at an art show Mecier is doing with fellow artist Adam J. Ansell … the show is called We Like to Watch TV. I have to say, I’m quite impressed with his work … these pieces are fantastic. Licorice is one of my fave candies so … I might have to pass on shelling out for any of these pieces. My fear is one night I’ll mistakenly eat Taylor Lautner … which shouldn’t sound as dirty as it does. I love these pieces, don’t you?
