Too Soon? Artist Makes Whitney Houston Portrait Out Of Pills

Jessica Rubin

We’ve seen all kinds of tributes to dead celebrities in our time, but this might be one of the strangest. The mosaic that Jason Mecier created of the late Whitney Houston is actually quite beautiful and creative, but the medium he chose might be taking it a little too far.

The entire piece is created from a variety of pills, which hits too close to home considering the singer was rumored to have passed from mixing alcohol and prescription drugs. We’re not sure how we feel about this one. It’s hard to blame a guy for trying, but maybe Mecier could have gone with PEZ instead?

What do you think of this questionable portrait?
