Artist Immortalizes Gene Wilder With Willy Wonka Candy Portrait


In the wake of Gene Wilder’s recent passing, San Francisco pop artist Jason Mecier created a fitting tribute in the form of a candy portrait depicting the actor as Willy Wonka, which is perhaps his most famous role. Although additional details are scarce, the mosaic is reportedly on display at Giddy Candy in the city’s Castro district.
