American mosaic artist Jason Mecier has created 3-D portraits of famous people using everyday items and trash such as margarine tubs, pens, pink toys, discarded cell phones and Coca-Cola bottles.

Among the people who have gotten a makeover from Mecier are Mariah Carey, Tiger Woods, Chris Rock, RuPaul and the late Anna Nicole Smith.

Implications - Products, advertising or artworks that interpret pop culture in new and exciting ways definitely stand out to consumers, and this is especially the case when the artistic process involves resourceful upcycling. A company struggling to connect with their target market through their ads need only look at how pieces such as these create cultural connections for inspiration.
