Eclectic San Francisco artist Jason Mecier has just unveiled his portrait of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The eclectic part? It’s composed out of 20 pounds of electronic waste!
Created using 20lbs of electronic waste — including cell phones, iPods, headphones, Mac keyboards, CD-Rs, batteries, mice, and memory sticks — Mecier’s portrait is a meticulous recreation of the iconic 2006 Albert Watson photo of Jobs originally commissioned by Fortune magazine.
The original image was used for the 2011 Steve Jobs biography, written by Walter Isaacson.
Mecier says each portrait of this type takes, “At least fifty hours, but many take much, much longer.”
The artist has used beans and noodles to portray television personalities, candy for music notables, and random food stuffs and junk for depicting other celebs. Mecier’s other celebrities depictions include Stevie Nicks, David Bowie, and Snoop Dogg.
