Who knew rat poison could be used for anything other than killing rats, right? Well, American artist Jason Clay Lewis has been using the famous d-CON rat poison and its yellow packaging to create unique works of art.
Jason Clay Lewis has always been fascinated by bizarre materials that help him develop his idea of attraction versus repultion, and d-CON packages are some of his greatest finds. Back in 2008, the New-York-based artist created d-CON Mary, a unique reproduction of the Virgin Mary statue made of fibreglas and d-CON packaging. It managed to draw attention to Jason’s work, and since then he has created an entire series of sculptures made from d-CON packs, and even the rat poison itself.
