This guy turns ecstasy into art

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.

His last London show was cancelled due to the venue's concerns of having thousands of illegal MDMA-laced beans on site. However, his work, which you can see below, is now on display atThe Ark, a group exhibition organised by Bear Cub Gallery in London between September 26 and October 2.

Get a preview of the work below.
