SELF PORTRAITS CREATED BY ARTIST WHILE USING DIFFERENT DRUGS

Performance artist Bryan Lewis Saunders took on a bizarre and bold creative adventure when he decided he would take a different drug every day over a period of forty five days, and while on these, render self-portraits that captured the different experiences, motivations and artistic impulses these drugs brought out in his work.

This is not a project to be taken lightly and we remind the kindly reader that the majority of these substances are not only illegal but also very dangerous. From nicotine gum, to cocaine, to Zoloft, to PCP, Saunders did it all. Here are some of the fascinating and strange results. Go here to learn more.

FYI: We don’t endorse this destructive and dangerous practice, drugs are harmful yo!
