Pixel-Pusha: Different Drug & New Painting Every Day for 20 Days

by Jessica Bush Mar 30, 2016

Graphic designer Brian Pollett aka Pixel-Pusha recently set out to give a visual representation of the effects of drugs. Each day, for 20 days straight, Pollett ingested a different one and sat down to interpret its effects into a digital illustration.

“At this point in my life I desire to express what I’ve learned from psychedelics, the creative process, and electronic music… I wanted to create opportunities to educate, whether related to psychedelics or art.”

After years of research into the emotional and chemical effects of each drug, Pollett commenced his 20-day experiment, using a drug testing kit to ensure the purity of each substance he was taking. He also always took the drugs in a controlled environment, within the safety of his studio, while listening to his favorite music.
