A guy called Chemical X makes art out of ecstasy and it's beautiful

Imagine these in your home...

Put simply, Chemical X turns ecstasy into art.

He creates images out of countless pills in order to, in his words, re-examine "an old friend or perhaps a feared enemy." Either way, he re-contextualises the relationship we have with disco biscuits.

The pinger obsessive is famous for designing the original Ministry Of Sound logo and has previously collaborated with Banksy and Damien Hirst.

He's also got an upcoming show exhibiting a brand-new piece made out of 7000 pills and it's said to be valued at £1 million.

The gallery above shows a collection of stuff that's also going to be on show at CX300 in London.
