Meet Chemical X, he’s an anonymous artist who creates murals and art pieces from real ecstasy pills, but the catch is, he doesn’t buy the pills, he makes them…
His lab presses the pills and apparently are constantly on the move to reduce the risk of being raided. There are two parts to his lab, one presses blank pills to the desired colour, the other is off the radar which makes the desired product.
Chemical X has said that neither himself or the lab have had any problems with the police, but they have a plan in case something does pop up. He also has a website which you can check out here.
He originally tried to hold an exhibition in a gallery in London back in 2013 with reported £175,000 worth of ecstasy pills, but the show was cancelled. Eventually he ended up holding an exhibition at the Bear Club Gallery, where he exhibited a mural of two doves with a church stain glass window made with over 10,000 pills. We presume they are actually fake ecstasy tablets, but you can check out some of his work below.
We haven’t heard of Chemical X in a while, but hopefully he’ll poppint up with some new pieces again one day.
