‘Dream On,’ You Could Own A Skittles Portrait of Steven Tyler
You probably saw the Skittles commercial during the Super Bowl featuring Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Well, a portrait of Tyler made out of the colorful candy is up for auction.
This portrait, for sale on eBay, is a replica of the piece featured in the commercial. It was placed up for auction by Auction Cause.
Here's part of the portrait's description:
This fine 21st century original Skittles masterpiece of Steven Tyler evokes the Van Gogh style of painting. (Not Vincent, his brother Doug Van Gogh... He loved Skittles). Created circa last Tuesday, this one of kind portrait is handcrafted using over 20,000 Skittles. It is an important period of art history referred to by the French as “plutôt doux” (translation: pretty sweet).
All of the proceeds from the sale of the portrait benefit Tyler’s charity, Jamie’s Fund, which benefits girls who suffer from abuse and neglect.
