Amy Winehouse In Pills: Artist Jason Mecier Creates Tribute Portrait (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

L.A. based artist Jason Mecier has captured Amy Winehouse in this incredible portrait made out of 5,000 multi-colored painkillers.

The soul singer died last month, bringing to an end her battle with drugs and alcohol. Since 2006, she earned a reputation for her struggle with eating disorders and addiction.

The Winehouse pill popping portrait is part of Jason Mecier's series of celebrity mosaics using everything from aspirin to candy and newspaper. Celebrities such as Amy Sedaris and Florence Henderson even send him their own junk. Flip through the photo gallery of Kelly Osbourne, Nicolas Cage, Michael Jackson and other stars.

Correction: A previous version of this post had the artist's name spelled incorrectly. It has since been changed to the true spelling.
