Artist Takes 20 Different Drugs And Creates 20 Illustrations To Show Drug Effects

Graphic designer Brian Pollett, aka Pixel-Pusha, pushed himself to the limit by doing a new type of drug every day for twenty days and making cool drawings. “My early explorations with psychedelics and electronic music parties have inspired the Binge project,” Pollet told Bored Panda. “At this point in my life, I desire to express my drawing ideas on what I’ve learned from psychedelics, the creative process, and electronic music.” We’ve covered artists like him, who create under the influence, before here.

“Imagine the past, future, and linear time is gone,” Pollett explained to A+. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. The drug effects enable me to create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work.”

Bored Panda does not endorse illegal drug use. Refer to your local laws before indulging in something potentially illegal.

Any artist who tried to do graphics being drunk will probably agree with me that it's probably mainly fake. It's way to perfect. There are very advanced techniques used here and there is no way a person after drugs would make it look so neat. Check Witkacy to see what I mean. And no digital medium is an excuse, I know what I'm saying.

He would have created the art after the effects wore off, while trying to create an image that reflects the experience. For example, DMT is VERY powerful and you can't really see anything around you, or move for that matter, and Ketamine makes you very sluggish and lazy.

Some people here are so literally minded! Where does he say that he made this illustration during the high itself? He's just trying to express his impression of how it affected him. These comments about "that's not possible" are so tedious. And so is the comments about how wrong or illegal it is. Don't like drugs? Then don't take them! Let everybody else do as they please.

All art is subjective. However, of the 11 substances mentioned here with which I have experience, I can't see how these types of feelings could possibly have been engendered by the drug. Much of this presentation was dictated by the graphic artist/ designer background of the artist and not by the way the drug made him feel. None of these images exhibit any disjointedness that is many times caused by the disruption of neural pathways. But then each drug (as well as each time any gien drug is experienced) is subjective as well.

I still remember high school, when I was prescribed Accutane for hidradenitis supprativa. The biggest side effect of that was elevated sensations of general depression and social anxiety. Any and all suggestions for improvement felt like condemnation and threats, even if they weren't. The world was always dark and foggy, and I remember the proneness toward social withdrawal. Picture the default image as a collage of blues and grays and ugly greens, and a world of suspicion and judgment. The mind trapped in a metaphorical concentration camp. That's Accutane. Now I know why the thing had so many warnings about users with suicidal ideations. It had a knack for exacerbating morbid obsessions.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this took a heck of a lot longer than 20 days. No way someone is hitting Meth then the very next day taking Mescaline let alone Ketamine the day after that. Not that I would know anything about these drugs *cough*. After 20 days of doing these drugs back to back I would be surprised if this guy could talk, let alone create any art without needing another week long binge of sleep and multivitamin injections. Very cool art though. They definitely represent the drugs so I don't have any doubt he actually did the drugs. Love the DMT. Nailed that one. And good god Methoxetamine? Never tried MXE personally. Heard you really need to know the dosage or face the hospital. But that picture alone has me curious for sure. That rainbow blasting through the eye out the back of the head... sheesh. I can only imagine the trip on that drug. Great job on the paintings. Would love to have these on my wall.

It seems like a heap of clichés about drugs in the form of art. Excellent technique, but I would expect an influence of individual drugs on it. Drugs instead, they act only to didascalic level: cocaine / currency, acid / psychedelic colors, love (this is very rhetorical) / kiss. I do not think that the artist was under the influence of those drugs, I think more to his 'interpretation' of the above. I am confident that in this light you will be able to better appreciate the artist's work. (I apologize for my broken English).

I know almost none of these... O.o Some look interesting, most look rather scary. Although, I don't agree with the alcohol one at all (unless that's a hangover), so who knows how adequate these are to ones own stat of mind and reaction. I hope I have enough money, when I'm a really old lady, because that's when I want to try a few drugs I am wayyy to afraid to use right now.

Whether or not this is real, I think this is absolutely ridiculous. Yes, for the sake of enjoying art, expressing what drugs are like in art form, and living in the moment I will use potentially harmful drugs? Like others are saying, it doesn't make sense that this is real, but the message this is displaying is really dangerous. Living in the moment is great and all, but "living" in one moment could mean dying in the next.

After 5 years of using responsibly using drugs in moderation I can safely say that I am yet to encounter any devastating side effects. If by that you mean eating 12 bags of Dorritos after smoking a 20 bag then yes you are correct! The legality of something indicate it's harmfulness. Yes there are people that use drugs and in don't do so well in life. But most of the time it is not the drugs you should blame. They may have turned to drugs after something devastating happening to them. Or they may have some kind of addictive personality. There are way too many factors. But it is almost never the substance itself.

Dear Bored Panda Paulina... The real problem here is that if you're going to take drugs at all- you're not going to do it everyday- because you're going to need some time in between at least some of these trips to recuperate. 20 consecutive days? Whatever. And poppers are a few second long head-rush- not an extended trip- and doing them again and again and again and again is somewhat pointless.

I can only imagine the trip on that drug. Great job on the paintings. Would love to have these on my wall.

Interesting how Ketamine and Love are so similarity portrayed. What do you think he was trying to say with that?

It seems like a heap of clichés about drugs in the form of art. Excellent technique, but I would expect an influence of individual drugs on it. Drugs instead, they act only to didascalic level: cocaine / currency, acid / psychedelic colors, love (this is very rhetorical) / kiss. I do not think that the artist was under the influence of those drugs, I think more to his 'interpretation' of the above. I am confident that in this light you will be able to better appreciate the artist's work. (I apologize for my broken English).

FAKE FAKE FAKE the work is too regular , same style, same subjects, quiet pictures....;it is impossible under dope, specially so different dopes Do you think we are stupid asses and will believe you ?

I think he most likely used a specialized computer software to either develop or use a template that he could then change to express how he felt the various psychoactive drugs had effected his brain

This is bull poop. Codeine had virtually mind-altering effects. Conversely, some of these drugs are so powerful that hold a brush steady enough to paint with would be nearly impossible.

He didn’t paint the pictures he designed them on a computer after the effects of the drugs wore off based on his memory

I think he should have had a few days off... he would have been knackered and what about the residual effects of one drug on the next? He needed to come down for a bit..especially around day 14 onwards.. it looked heavy!

I'm happy that my drug of choice is sugar. (not that that's a good thing) I had to google most of these to find out what they even were! lol

I know almost none of these... O.o Some look interesting, most look rather scary. Although, I don't agree with the alcohol one at all (unless that's a hangover), so who knows how adequate these are to ones own stat of mind and reaction. I hope I have enough money, when I'm a really old lady, because that's when I want to try a few drugs I am wayyy to afraid to use right now.

Whether or not this is real, I think this is absolutely ridiculous. Yes, for the sake of enjoying art, expressing what drugs are like in art form, and living in the moment I will use potentially harmful drugs? Like others are saying, it doesn't make sense that this is real, but the message this is displaying is really dangerous. Living in the moment is great and all, but "living" in one moment could mean dying in the next.

overgloryfying of drugs Imagine the past, future, and linear time are gone,” Pollett explained to A+. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. I can create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work."

I bought a friend of mine a book from Bryan Lewis Saunders. He drew self-portraits while high on different drugs. I believe he said he ended up with some brain damage after his "experiment". His get crazy, and you can definitely tell he was "under the influence" while doing them.

images are beautiful BUT this seems like an attempt to downplay the devestating side effects of using drugs

JoelAllport
Community Member

After 5 years of using responsibly using drugs in moderation I can safely say that I am yet to encounter any devastating side effects. If by that you mean eating 12 bags of Dorritos after smoking a 20 bag then yes you are correct! The legality of something indicate it's harmfulness. Yes there are people that use drugs and in don't do so well in life. But most of the time it is not the drugs you should blame. They may have turned to drugs after something devastating happening to them. Or they may have some kind of addictive personality. There are way too many factors. But it is almost never the substance itself.

Dear Bored Panda Paulina... The real problem here is that if you're going to take drugs at all- you're not going to do it everyday- because you're going to need some time in between at least some of these trips to recuperate. 20 consecutive days? Whatever. And poppers are a few second long head-rush- not an extended trip- and doing them again and again and again and again is somewhat pointless.

its a lie, no one can do this when he is on drugs, cocaine and THC maybe the others I can't believe.. especially alcohol, every person who got drunk before, knows very well that alcohol makes no job perfect other than vomiting!

He doesn't seem to have taken many drugs, because he wouldn't be able to create these images under "real" influence. That aside, many of those substances aren't only dangerous, they're also illegal.

He made them after he did the drugs.
