The Jason Mecier Meat Portraits are Made of Beef Jerky

These Jason Mecier Meat Portraits are some of the more unconventional images that audiences have seen of America’s political rivals. Made from 80 bags of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, each portrait took the artist approximately 50 hours to complete. Each portrait uses a variety of different jerky flavors; maybe this was to just get different shades, or maybe it was to represent the diversity of America.

The two Jason Mecier Meat Portraits have been aptly named ‘Barack Obameat’ and ‘Meat Romney.’ The two of them together definitely bring new meaning to the term "meatheads."

This isn’t Mecier’s first time working with beef jerky. He has used the dried meat to create a picture of Sasquatch in the past. The pictures are really intriguing-looking, but a conflicting feeling of disgust comes when I think of the materials sitting on the canvas for an undetermined amount of time.
