Fishscale

Fishcale Cocaine

Fishcale is a term used to describe high-quality cocaine that is flaky like the scales of a fish. Ironically the cocaine sold on the street in Lisbon is of poor quality that contains adulterated powders posing more of a risk than coca leaf used in the production of cocaine.

Cocaine Paste

Using a mix of light modelling paste and street cocaine, I made a paste that would be painted on black canvas. Each semi circle was first drawn out using a protractor and laid over with cocaine paste.
